We know that being LGBTQ+ in medicine and dentistry can present unique challenges as well as opportunities. GLADD is able to provide support during your studies for issues you might come across affecting patients, staff or yourselves, as well as LGBTQ+ health more widely. If you need advice, we will always do our best to act as friendly faces and signpost you on to other resources if needed.
Student members can also benefit from our upcoming mentoring scheme, which will be relaunched in the coming year. The scheme matches you with a qualified GLADD member based on your interests, with a view to providing support and guidance for your studies and career plans. Don't worry if you're not sure where you want your career to go just yet; all our mentors are happy to help out in whatever way they can. More information coming summer 2021.
