Hormones: Dr. Bruce Churchill at University Health Services (UHS) is familiar with hormone therapy and has experience working with LGBTQ students. He uses an informed consent process and is connected with a team of medical and mental health providers to help meet your needs. After speaking with Dr. Churchill about your desire to pursue hormones, he will go over a consent form detailing the effects hormones may or will have on your body and will discuss necessary testing and follow-up appointments. Generally a referral to an endocrinologist is not needed, but Dr. Churchill will discuss your specific needs based on your medical history.
