Harvard Trains Medical Students to Treat Transgender 'Infants'

Is your infant transgender? If so, you may want to consult a Harvard-trained physician.

The school is offering a course called “Caring for Patients with Diverse Sexual Orientations, Gender Identities, and Sex Development,” which aims to instruct on-their-way medical experts in treating “LGBTQIA+” individuals — including those who have just been born.


As detailed by the official description, the class concerns patients who “identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex or asexual (LGBTQIA+).”

Attendees will learn to apply “evidenced-based medicine”:

Incorporation of Basic Science Content and Evidence-Based Medicine

At the beginning of the elective, each medical student will receive an updated packet of foundational and current peer-reviewed articles in the area of gender and sexual minority health, to ground their clinical experience in relevant basic science and evidence-based practice.

Students will observe clinicians engaging in evidence-based medical care with the populations describe above. In addition, the medical student will engage in clinical practice themselves while being directly supervised by faculty attendings and fellows, most of whom have a strong background and/or expertise in evidence-based medical practice.

The educational framework for this elective is based on recommendations of the AAMC report entitled, “Implementing Curricular and Institutional Climate Changes to Improve Health Care for Individuals who are LGBT, Gender Nonconforming, or Born with DSD: A Resource for Medical Educators,” with primary learning goals adapted from the 30 competencies of the Physician Competency Reference Set (PCRS) that the AAMC contextualized to ensure that trainees acquire the knowledge, attitudes and skills needed to provide sensitive and affirming care for the aforementioned populations.


What may surprise some is that the pupils are preparing to treat sexually sophisticated newborns:

Clinical exposure and education will focus on serving gender and sexual minority people across the lifespan, from infants to older adults.

The subject of sexuality used to be broached by parents around the time of a child’s entrance into puberty. These days, institutions are happy to take the reins — and way before kids get hormonal. Issues of identity are also in the mix early on:

As for an institutional embrace of transgenderism, both medicine and academia are open-armed:

Back to Harvard and its service to alternately-identifying infants: It remains unclear as to how a human being fresh from the womb might perceive themself in any way at all according to the contemporary concept of “gender” — something sexual progressives have insisted is a social construct. What perhaps is more mysterious is how the language-less little one will communicate it. Maybe the baby gives clued-in caregivers an informative look.

Either way, the world is not as it once was. That’s certainly the case for education and science; and where science goes, so migrates medicine.
