The Penn Medicine Program for LGBTQ Health supports LGBTQ individuals in the workplace, classroom, and healthcare settings by promoting an LGBTQ-inclusive climate and culture. Fostering institutional climate and visibility will ensure that LGBTQ faculty, students, staff, and patients feel fully welcomed and accepted at Penn.
The vision of the Program for LGBTQ Health is to improve the care of LGBTQ populations by becoming a local and national leader in LGBTQ patient care, education, research, and advocacy. To accomplish this vision, the program will focus on five areas:
- Institutional climate and visibility
- Health Education
- Patient Care
- Community Outreach
