AMSA Queer Project
AMSA works to promote health equity for all people, and recognises the importance of respecting diverse sexualities and gender presentations.
2018 is an exciting year for AMSA Queer Project, with the new AMSA Queer Network launched in June during Pride month. This online network aims to provide a safe space for LGBTIQ medical students to connect and find community and solidarity, and to discuss issues of particular interest to the queer community. It is an autonomous network, and is accessible to LGBTIQ-identifying medical students. To join the secret facebook group, simply email email@example.com.
Another major aspect of AMSA’s work promoting LGBTIQ equity is the production and collation of educational resources for dissemination throughout medical schools. This year, AMSA Queer Project is teaming up with Wavelength Med in creating an event guide for wellbeing or queer reps, allies and/or LGBTIQ-identifying students to run workshops for other medical students. These workshops allow for awareness raising around terminology and queer issues in clinical practice.
