U.S. medical schools boost LGBTQ students, doctor training

Harvard Medical School student Aliya Feroe, of Minneapolis, Minn., poses for a photograph on the school’s campus, in Boston. Feroe recalls a flustered OB-GYN who referred her to another physician after learning she identified as queer. Medical schools are beefing up education on LBGTQ health issues. And some schools are making a big push to recruit LGBTQ medical students, backed by research showing that patients often get better care when treated by doctors who are more like them.
