Transgender Health Care

All clinicians at Student Health and Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS) welcome students from every background, but we also have wonderful professionals with special expertise and experience in transgender healthcare that you may want to utilize. They can help you with everyday problems, as well as more specialized needs that may require a referral to surgeons, psychiatrists or endocrinologists.


We welcome your input on how we can improve our services related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning students. Please let us know by email:
