This website was created to teach psychiatry residents about caring for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trangender, and intersex patients. However, we hope it will also be useful to all health and mental health trainees and practitioners.

The site includes a series of modules that can be used sequentially to provide a comprehensive learning guide for working with LGBT patients. Each module has also been designed to be a stand-alone unit on a specific topic concerning LGBT patients. All modules include learning goals and objectives. Each module begins with a pre-test to help participants assess their existing knowledge about specific topics. After the main body of each module, a post-test helps assure that learning goals have been achieved. Modules also have relevant links, resource lists, and references to facilitate deeper exploration of topics.
