Welcome to the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine (SOM) Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender People in Medicine Plus (LGBTPM +) Faculty-Staff Website.



About the group:

Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender People in Medicine is the name of an active advocacy committee within the national American Medical Student Association
