According to a 2016 estimate, there are 1.4 million transgender people in the U.S. This growing segment of the population is faced with a shortage of appropriately trained health care providers. The Transgender Health Program at Oregon Health & Sciences University already offers an umbrella of services to transgender patients. Now its aim is to become a training ground for providers of transgender care, from nurses to specialized surgeons.
