The Division of Gender, Sexuality, and Health within the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior at the University of Mississippi Medical Center is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of women and LGBT individuals through research, education, clinical practice, and community outreach. This division also aims to train the next generation of researchers, educators, and clinicians in LGBT and women's health needs, and to enhance cultural competence in LGBT and women's health throughout the medical center. This division currently comprises both an LGBT Health Program and a Women's Health Program. One initiative within the LGBT Health Program is the LGBT specialty clinic, which provides an affirming environment for members of the LGBT community to seek culturally competent psychiatric care. This clinic also serves as a training clinic for residents and medical students, providing evidence-based teaching to promote cultural competence in LGBT health.
