Harvard Medical School is now offering new a course about providing sex-change treatments for “infants.”
The course is titled “Caring for Patients with Diverse Sexual Orientations, Gender Identities, and Sex Development.”
“Clinical exposure and education will focus on serving gender and sexual minority people across the lifespan, from infants to older adults,” the course description states.
The elective includes “partnerships and clinical experiences at Harvard Medical School hospitals and within community settings, including clinical experiences at Boston Children’s Hospital.”
The four-week course is held mainly at Massachusetts General Hospital, it is available full-time every month.
According to a report from The College Fix, the two directors of the course, Alex Keuroghlian and Alberto Puig, work for Massachusetts General.
Keuroghlian is also a psychiatrist at the Fenway Health Center and a “woke” activist pushing children to undergo life-altering transgender surgeries.
He published research in 2021 that claims so-called “gender-affirming care” led to better mental health outcomes among transgender children.
Keuroghlian also attacked Texas Governor Greg Abbott last year for trying to protect children from the practice.
“This elective is a four-week multidisciplinary clinical-and-scholarly experience that trains students to provide high-quality, culturally responsive care for patients with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities, and sex development,” the course description explains.
“Many of these patients identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, or asexual (LGBTQIA+).”
“Students will work with multidisciplinary teams in a variety of clinical settings and specialties, including but not limited to Adolescent Medicine, Endocrinology, Family Practice, Infectious Disease, OBGYN, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, Psychology, Primary Medical Care, and Plastic Surgery,” it adds.
“They will be immersed in clinical practices committed to promoting health and resiliency for gender and sexual minority communities.”
In addition to Massachusetts General and Harvard Medical School, the course also offers “partnerships and clinical experiences” at Boston Children’s Hospital.
BCH has previously stoked controversy by offering various “gender-affirming” care for minors.
As Slay News previously reported, a doctor at BCH claimed in a video put out by the hospital that some transgender patients know their gender identity “as early as seemingly from the womb.”
“They will usually express their gender identity as very young children, some as soon as they can talk, they might say phrases such as ‘I’m a girl’ or ‘I’m a boy’ or ‘I’m going to be a woman’ or ‘I’m going to be a mom,’” Dr. Kerry McGregor, a psychologist at BCH’s Gender Multispecialty Service clinic, claims in the video.
“Kids know very, very early.”
The clinic serves patients as young as age 2 or 3 years old, McGregor also said.
Besides BCH, the course allows students to work at the Cambridge Health Alliance, the Harvard-affiliated Fenway Health Center, Boston Health Care for the Homeless, and other healthcare organizations that serve the LGBT community.
The course also pushes transgender research on students who take it.
“At the beginning of the elective, each medical student will receive an updated packet of foundational and current peer-reviewed articles in the area of gender and sexual minority health, to ground their clinical experience in relevant basic science and evidence-based practice,” the course description reads.
The course is part of Harvard Medical School’s Sexual and Gender Minority Health Equity Initiative.
The initiative seeks to “foster excellence caring for patients with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities, and sex development.”
