Harvard Medical School is now offering a course about providing LGBT healthcare to infants.

The course is titled “Caring for Patients with Diverse Sexual Orientations, Gender Identities, and Sex Development.”

The course description states, “clinical exposure and education will focus on serving gender and sexual minority people across the lifespan, from infants to older adults.”

The elective includes “partnerships and clinical experiences at Harvard Medical School hospitals and within community settings, including clinical experiences at Boston Children’s Hospital.” 

Boston Children’s Hospital has faced controversy over a now-deleted video that said children can know their “gender identity” or be “transgender” — “from the womb.”

The hospital also had a video about how they are offering hysterectomies for young girls.

“Based on individual interests, students will have the opportunity to engage in a mentored scholarly endeavor related to gender and sexual minority health. This project may consist of an advocacy, quality improvement, medical education, original research, or public health project,” the course description explains.

Fox News notes that “Massachusetts General Hospital, which serves as the primary meeting location for the medical school’s 2022-23 academic year, offers a variety of transgender surgical procedures for individuals 18 and older, as well as resources for transgender youth, such as referrals to LGBTQ support groups.”
