Cultural Humility with LGBT Populations: A Novel Curriculum in LGBT Health for Clinical Medical Students

Date of Review: February, 2019

This resource, from MedEdPORTAL, describes a 2-hour session to introduce principles of cultural humility in the care of LGBT+ patients to clinical medical students. The curriculum consists of three parts: pre-readings, a 1-hr didactic session, and a patient panel. Authors provide notes on how to thoughtfully select both facilitators and panelists for the session and present learning outcomes from pre/post survey (+ knowledge gains, though low response rate). The authors indicate an interest in expanding the curriculum further to include small group or written reflections. Lecture notes, slides, and curricular resources are provided to assist those who hope to implement this curriculum in their own institutions.– Brigid Dolan, MD, NCEAS
