Whoo hoo! Just back from participating on a trans education panel for residents at Kaiser. I did this once before, about three years ago. Dr. Robin Dea (chief of psychiatry) was the main speaker. There were supposed to be a couple other panelists, but they didn't show. Anyhow, it was an informal question and answer in the round setup, and went well. A lot of suprised and sympathetic faces as the time went by. We touched on sexual orientation, how one learns where to begin, the attitude doctors should have (not different than with any other patient actually), and much more.

I had a super satisfying experience in the farewells; a woman came up to me and said she'd seen me on the same panel a few years back, and had just last month operated on her first FTM, and was so greatful to have me at the panel back when; the experience had really helped her with this patient.

I love educating doctors this way. So much better than when in the patient position (which someone pointed out, to my pleased surprise).
