The Huffington Post - "First Trans Surgery Fellowship Launched"

New York, NY
 – August 9, 2017  –– 

The first full-year transgender surgery fellowship is launching at Mount Sinai Hospital, which currently sees about four patients a week for gender-affirming surgery. The program seeks to fill a void in training programs for physicians looking to provide gender-affirming care, which staff say is “a matter of life and death” for many transgender individuals.
