Fellow Education

  • Learn how to evaluate young people at all ages and stages of their gender journey in seeking medical and surgical gender affirming care. 
  • Learn how to initiate and manage gender affirmation care  understand the needs for advocacy and health equity in gender affirmation care

 

During each of the subspecialty rotation (ie psychology, gynecology, plastics surgery, etc), the advance fellow will 

  • Understand the role of that subspecialty in gender affirmation care

  • Understand the evaluation process involved in the gender affirmation care for that subspecialty

  • Gain exposure to the common behavioral, medical and surgical therapies and procedures involved in gender affirmation care related to that subspecialty

  • Provide basic counseling related to other subspecialty care referrals  

  • Know the indications for the various interventions offered by that subspecialty related to gender affirmation care

 

Milestone 2.0 for the initial pediatric subspecialty will be used every 6 months to evaluate the advance fellow.
