Educating & Helping Providers Navigate Transgender Health Care
As the only multi-disciplinary Transgender Health Program in the Mountain West, we are committed to providing education and resources to providers looking for more information. Your practice can take advantage of our transgender health best practice trainings or participate in annual clinical CME (continuing medical education) opportunities on this topic.
For fellowship and medical student learning opportunities visit our School of Medicine page.
Letters of Support
University of Utah Health providers follow the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) Standards of Care. This means we require letters of support to be provided by mental health providers for most surgical services. These letters should be written by a mental health professional.
A patient’s insurance plan may require additional letters or requirements, this will be determined when the patient calls their insurance company and when our team submits for the prior authorization for surgery.
Please send these letters to our team via:
- email at firstname.lastname@example.org or
- fax them to 801-581-2296 and address it to Attn: Transgender Health Program.
