LGBTQ+ INCLUSIVE MEDICAL EDUCATION ALLIANCE (LIMA)
ABOUT LGBTQ+ INCLUSIVE MEDICAL EDUCATION ALLIANCE
We are a network of medical students, doctors and service users campaigning for better LGBTQ+ teaching for medical students and doctors to improve healthcare professionals' Medical Curriculum and queer patients' experiences. Our vision is for teaching on LGBTQ+ health to be a requirement across UK Medical Schools, in order to sufficiently equip medical students to treat LGBTQ+ patients in their future practise
