UCLA Health non-discrimination policy >
In 2019 the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA launched a fellowship to address LGBTQ health care needs and inequities, areas that often are overlooked in medical school and residency training. The program provides the fellow with an immersive experience in LGBTQ health and wellness, including sexual and behavioral health, transgender care and hormone management, and gender affirming surgery. Dr. Felipe Saavedra became the program’s newest fellow on July 1. A native of Chile, Dr. Saavedra moved to the United States in 2015 to join UCLA’s International Medical Graduate Program. He completed his family medicine residency at UCLA and hopes to use his bilingual and bicultural skills to build bridges to L.A.’s Hispanic LGBTQ community. The Gender Health Program welcomes Dr. Saavedra! Read more on UCLA Connect >
