Penn Medicine Program for LGBT Health - Health Education

Major health organizations have reported large gaps in LGBT health education. 

On average, medical students receive less than five hours of training on LGBT issues during medical school. Similarly, these organizations recognize the challenges faced by LGBT health professional students and the need to broaden education in the field of LGBT health. 

A 2013 Gay and Lesbian Medical Association (GLMA) report recommended that health professional schools provide professional development workshops for LGBT students, raise awareness about LGBT discrimination and give presentations on LGBT health disparities.
