LGBTQ Medical Education Research Group

Welcome to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, & Transgender
Medical Education Assessment (LGBT-MEA)

Thank you for your interest in the LGBT-MEA, a research project designed to help medical schools train health care professionals to provide excellent care to lesbian, gay, bisexual, & transgender (LGBT) individuals.

All medical (D.O. and M.D.) students in Canada and the United States regardless of sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, personal beliefs, or subject knowledge are welcome to participate. We need to hear from everyone!

All respondents can be entered in a prize drawing for gift certificates. Winners of gift certificates valuing $25 each will be chosen via a random drawing.*

The Gay & Lesbian Medical Association (GLMA), the American Medical Association Medical Student Section (AMA-MSS), the Student Osteopathic Medical Association (SOMA), the Council of Osteopathic Student Government Presidents (COGSP), and the American Medical Student Association (AMSA) have issued letters of support for the LGBT-MEA.

The winners of this prize drawing will be informed via the e-mail address (or alternatively, phone number) from the contact information provided. No participation is necessary to enter or win a prize, and participation does not increase your chances of winning. Responses to survey questions will remain anonymous.
