Successful applicants are U.S.-trained MDs and DOs with a strong interest in caring for LGBTQ communities and have completed or will be completing their residency training by June 30, 2022 in Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, or Internal Medicine/Pediatrics combined specialties. Applicants should also have a passion for leadership, teaching, research and a motivation to expand the current field of LGBTQ medicine.
