About/Mission Statement 

Q-Med is the queer medical student organization at the University of Washington School of Medicine.

The mission of Q-Med is to provide education and information to the medical community and all that are interested in healthcare issues affecting the Queer (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, intersex, etc.) population.

We will strive to ensure a welcoming, respectful and safe academic environment for Queer students at the University of Washington Medical School.

We are committed to supporting a diverse community on campus and will provide resources and support for Queer students.

We are a group of students and staff that are both queer and straight allies that believe in the importance of equality in healthcare for all people
