Program Goals 1. Preceptees will become familiar with epidemiology, diagnosis, and management of medical and behavioral health issues specific to sexual and gender minority populations. 2. Preceptees will improve their cultural competency in taking a LGBTQ-sensitive medical history, including a social and sexual history.
Methods of Instruction Preceptees will accomplish the above course goals by participating in a variety of learning experiences. Pre-clinic conferences will consist of speaker-led presentations, case discussions, and peer review exercises. In addition to preceptors and outside speakers, IPE clinical preceptees in residence for six months or more will be expected to deliver at least one presentation per year related to relevant primary care topics. Clinical sessions will feature preceptors and preceptees participating in individual case discussions, observation and evaluation of care, and practical instruction.
