Overview

This CME activity evaluates the current literature on various health and clinical aspects of the transgender populations. The questions are also designed to evaluate central features of social determinants of health in transgender youths and adults.

This is a pulse learning module composed of multiple choice questions and case vignettes. Using a pulsed learning format via email, you are provided with a series of multiple-choice questions to be completed over time. Questions are emailed to users at pre-set intervals and quantities. By tackling only a few questions at a time, the pulsed learning format eliminates brain strain and re-focuses attention on the subject matter to improve knowledge retention.
