Abstract

This article from the “To the Point” series prepared by the Association of Professors in Gynecology and Obstetrics (APGO) Undergraduate Medical Education Committee (UMEC) provides educators with strategies for inclusion of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT)-related content into the medical school curriculum. With a focus on the Obstetrics and Gynecology (OB/GYN) clerkship, we also address ways to enhance visibility of these curricula within existing clinical and teaching experiences.
