Abstract:

LGBTQ students face unique challenges and questions on their paths to careers in the health professions, including the potential for discrimination. Based on available data, this particular population of students is becoming increasingly visible in graduate health professions education and during the application process. Accordingly, health professions advisors must be prepared to meet the needs of these students and do more to make up for existing gaps in resources and information, positioning themselves as strong allies to a historically marginalized community. Recommendations and resources are offered, including guidance on establishing trust and credibility with LGBTQ advisees.
