The health of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) population is a national priority. Both the Institute of Medicine (IOM) and Healthy People 2020 have stressed the need for educating all health care workers on LGBT health disparities with the ultimate aim of providing culturally-sensitive care that will promote productive, long and healthy lives for all LGBT persons across the lifespan. The impetus to dedicate a concerted effort to understand and address the need of LGBT population has also been highlighted by mandates from the Joint Commission (JC). Health care facilities seeking JC accreditation must demonstrate capacity and compliance to the mandates which relate to the unique needs of the LGBT population. To better meet the needs of the LGBT population, a large urban private university initiated steps to revise its curricula across bachelors, masters, and doctoral programs. We began the process by first assessing faculty baseline knowledge as well as readiness to address LGBT issues and concerns in education, practice, and research. This presentation will discuss the findings from this survey. Analysis of survey results will serve as the basis for planning faculty development programs and to align the curriculum with the above mentioned national health priorities.
