Education & Trainings at Whitman-Walker
We apply and extend our expertise in LGBTQ health and wellness by offering clinical training and internships to medical and behavioral health practitioners; and by offering LGBTQ competency education to licensed professionals, students, agency staff, and community.
We collaborate with our direct service center, Whitman-Walker Health, to provide internships, residencies, and training programs across a range of health care disciplines. Areas of expertise include HIV care, diagnosis and management of sexually transmitted infections, behavioral health, youth services, and gender-affirming care.
Outside of formal medical education, we disseminate our models of care and clinical and community expertise through a multitude of trainings and educational opportunities.
We offer a multi-level curriculum of general and specialized LGBTQ competency and other trainings to providers and community partners across many disciplines, including LGBTQ health, HIV treatment and prevention, working with queer youth and families, medical-legal partnerships, name and gender change, estate planning, harm reduction, trauma-informed care, and many more.
