Gender & Sexuality Action Committee

Gender and Sexuality

pin3_77x80lgbpmThe Gender and Sexuality Committee is dedicated to combating sexism and heterosexism, and to assuring equal access to medical care and equality within medical education. We work to establish AMSA as a leader on issues affecting the health of women, intersex people and the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) communities and support initiatives to improve policy at the institutional, local, state, and federal levels. We advocate for patients through curricular improvement, increased physician education, research, and health-related resources. We support physicians-in-training by fostering a safe and supportive environment, providing leadership development opportunities, and advocating for their rights.
