Theme: LGBTQIA+ Identity, Experiences & Challenges In Healthcare.

Presenter: Dr Caroline Tyers.

Discussion:
Toman L. (2019). Navigating medical culture and LGBTQ identity. The clinical teacher, 16(4), 335–338. https://doi.org/10.1111/tct.13078.

Summary:

  • This was a qualitative study which focused on the experience of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer medical students as trainees within the medical profession.
  • This study aimed to investigate how LGBTQIA+ medical students navigate medical school as minorities and sociocultural behaviours within medical culture contribute to their overall well-being and mental health.
  • 12 LGBTQ medical students from 4 different medical schools in Michigan were placed into focus groups in 2018.
  • The prominent themes that emerged from this study were: 1) fears of repercussions of identifying as part of the LGBTQIA+ community, 2) a lack of mentorship for these students, and 3) the added burden of being from a non-white background.
  • The conclusion of this study highlighted the importance of implementing programs to support diversity and welcome differences among students and employees alike.
  • It raised the need for deliberate support of LGBTQIA+ students through advocacy and conditions that encourage affirmation and promote positive mental health outcomes.

Take-Home Points:

  • Not only are our LGBTQIA+ patients important but our colleagues are also incredibly important too.
  • Our LGBTQIA+ colleagues may face different challenges, and it is something that we as a medical community need to work together toward improving.
