Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning Health
We are committed to providing confidential, quality care in a safe and friendly environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) students. College and graduate school is a time when many people question or explore their sexuality and sexual orientation. No matter where you may be in terms of discovering your sexuality, we are here for you! Most of our providers have taken additional training to increase their ability to provide nonjudgmental, supportive care for LGBQ and Transgender students.
FIU Student Health Service provides primary care, as well as reproductive and sexual health care, tailored to fit an individual student’s specific needs. Thus, the health care provided takes into account biologic sex, any anatomic variations, particularly following surgery, and specific sexual practices. Transgender students interested in cross gender therapy are welcome to come and consult with us. We will work with the student to develop the best treatment plan for them in collaboration with their mental health care provider. We provide services related to cross gender therapy and provide ongoing care and follow-up after the initiation and initial adjustment of hormones.
Florida International University Student Health Service serves all students, including those who identify as gender-variant, gender queer, transgender, and/or transsexual. Our clinical staff works in conjunction with the individual student to address the health issues most important to the student.
We’re not here to judge; we’re here to help.
