Discussions on Gender Affirmation: Surgery and Beyond


May 30-June 1, 2019
Kabuki Hotel San Francisco

Join the conversation at this San Francisco conference aimed at helping health care providers address the ethical and practice-related concerns of serving trans individuals who are considering surgery. 

Topics to be covered include:

  • An ethical framework for navigating challenges in gender care
  • Counseling patients/clients regarding surgery options
  • Physical preparation for surgery
  • Discussions on complications of gender surgeries
  • Masculinizing and feminizing surgical procedures
  • Nonbinary surgery requests
  • Ethical issues in adolescent treatment
  • How to be a well-informed health care advocate 
  • Facial feminization and voice surgery

This CME/CE accredited conference for all health care professionals is sponsored by Saint Francis Memorial Hospital (SFMH) and the World Professional Association for Transgender Health’s Global Education Initiative (WPATHGEI). 

We invite you to attend three days of focused education and professional dialogue exploring the interdisciplinary nature of transgender care.  Our primary aim is to help providers become articulate about gender surgery and capable of competently supporting individuals who undergo these procedures.
