Abstract

Providing culturally competent and medically knowledgeable care to the transgender community is increasingly falling within the realms of practice for primary care providers. The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of best practices as they relate to transgender care. This article is by no means a comprehensive guide, but rather a starting point for clinicians as they provide high-quality care to their transgender patients.
