Two Birds with One Stone: Teaching and Assessing Medical Students in Caring for LGBTQ Patients and Using Medical Interpreters

Description

We sought to teach and assess medical students in our year-long Principles of Clinical Medicine course on the care of LGBTQ patients, cross-cultural communication, and the use of medical interpreters for patients with limited English proficiency. This poster describes the two teaching sessions and one end-of-term Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) developed for these purposes.
