Expert Talk on Transgender Healthcare for Medical Students


The BL Urology Society is happy to announce a seminar hosted by Miss Tina Rashid on the basics of transgender healthcare. Miss Rashid is a Consultant Urological Surgeon and an expert in feminising Gender Affirming Genital Surgery.

Transgender individuals often have poor experiences in healthcare settings. Much of this is because healthcare professionals do not have knowledge about gender dysphoria and the healthcare needs of people who identify as trans.

This talk will provide you with some of the skills and knowledge required to help you understand gender dysphoria and provide transgender patients with the best possible care.

This talk is part of an SSC (student selected component) project. A survey will be provided before and after the talk to assess if the talk impacted student’s knowledge and attitudes towards transgender healthcare. We would appreciate it if you would take part in this.
