Leading the industry in a true partnership of care, create a MyPennMedicine account to receive easy and secure digital access to the information you need most — whenever you need it — test results, referrals, refills, appointments and more.
Penn Medicine Program for LGBT Health
Penn Medicine's vision is to improve the care of LGBT populations by becoming a national leader in five key areas: climate, outreach, health education, research and patient care.
In an ever growing global community, health care isn't limited to a person's home country. There are times when a patient needs to travel to receive the most advanced treatment options. With over 2,000 physicians, Penn Medicine is suited to treat even the most difficult medical cases. Penn Global Medicine goes one step further by assisting international patients with all of their needs before, during and after their stay.
