The RCP are launching new educational programmes in Gender Identity Healthcare (GIH), building on the success of the inaugural GIH credential programme with the University of London. The RCP and NHS England are proud of the achievements from this first programme, and are further developing the educational offering based on extensive feedback and programme evaluation.
The RCP are now developing new Gender Identity Healthcare Professional Certificates for clinicians working in adult services supporting patients aged 17 and over, and will be launching programmes in the coming months. The new programmes will be suited to current workforce needs, comprising work-based learning and assessment, integrated with clinical work. As before, this will enable clinicians to develop the specialised knowledge they need and to offer service users, professionals, employers and the public, confidence that clinicians working in the field of gender identity healthcare, are appropriately trained and competent.
