Making Inclusion a Priority at UChicago Medicine
Since 2015, UChicago Medicine has been a LGBTQ+ Healthcare Equality Leader with the Human Rights Campaign Foundation (HRC). We have earned the highest score in each section of the Healthcare Equality Index (HEI) survey, showing our inclusive practices and policies for LGBTQ+ patients, visitors and employees.
At UChicago Medicine:
- Our clinicians and other staff complete training in LGBTQ+ patient-centered care, including courses from HRC and the Fenway Institute.
- We include sexual orientation and gender identity in our patient and employee non-discrimination policy, and many of our UChicago Medicine staff identify as LGBTQ+.
- We have policies that work to end bias and insensitivity. We aim to provide a safe and welcoming place for LGBTQ+ patients across the medical center.
