The Jesuit-run Loyola University Chicago is offering students a course in “transgender” medicine, including the treatment of children who identify as transgender.
The course listing, which is grouped under a “Family Medicine” department label, purports to “teach students the evidence-based treatment of LGBTQ+ patients in medicine.”
Students in the two-week course may be taught the “initiation and maintenance of hormones for transgender patients,” health care for “transgender children/adolescents,” and “gender confirmation surgery.”
Participants in the course are urged to attend shadow sessions at medical clinics “where the majority of patients identify as LGBTQ+.”
