Out in Medicine (OiM)

Out in Medicine is the University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine’s LGBTQ student
group. We are dedicated to three main goals:

1. Advocacy
Engage in advocacy around local to global LGBTQ issues including (but not limited to) human rights, social determinants of health, healthcare access, HIV/AIDS care, and safe spaces. We also support initiatives to prevent discrimination in the workplace for healthcare professionals as well as working towards a culture of inclusivity in medicine and medical education.
2. Community
Out In Medicine strives to connect LGBTQ medical students with each other, with LGBTQ physicians and faculty, as well as with other healthcare professionals or students. This will be done through a variety of social and educational events. We strongly encourage participation by LGBTQ allies.
3. Education and Development
We will identify gaps in the current curriculum as related to LGBTQ health, work to bring these gaps to the attention of the medical education community, and collaboratively contribute to developing innovative solutions to overcome them. This is intended to affect all medical students in their early professional development and influence their future practices. In addition to our own projects, we aim to work closely with the University of Toronto and its affiliated institutions to improve LGBTQ health-
related initiatives.
