Callen Lorde Community Health Center
New York City's only primary health care center dedicated to meeting the health care needs of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) communities and people living with HIV/AIDS -- regardless of any patient's ability to pay. Medical students can do 2-4 week long electives in “LGBT Health” (for students at schools where this might not be acceptable, the elective can be titled “Urban Health.”) Callen Lorde offers specific clinics for different populations, including MSM and transmen, among others. The staff is willing to assist students in tailoring the elective to individual interests.
Cleveland PRIDE Clinic The PRIDE Clinic rotation offers medical students a chance to do primary care medicine with LGBT populations. This rotation is listed as IMED 4003B at the Case Western Reserve School of Medicine. For more information on Cleveland PRIDE Clinic, click here.

Gender Management Services (GeMS) Clinic
The Gender Management Service (GeMS) Clinic at Children's Hospital Boston is a new multidisciplinary clinic that treats the medical and psychosocial issues of infants, children, adolescents and young adults with disorders of sexual differentiation (DSDs). Many of the patients face medical issues that may make it difficult to determine their sex and may interfere with sexual and reproductive function. Therefore, the clinic works closely with patients and their families to find the treatment that works best for everyone involved. The clinic is also the first major program in the United States that not only treats disorders of sexual differentiation, but also works with transgendered children and young adults.
