Dear Potential Participant,

I am a doctoral student in the Health Professions Education Program at Simmons College in Boston, MA and am requesting your assistance with the recruitment of health professions educators who work in higher education programs AND teach transgender education for the study I am conducting.

The purpose of my research project is to explore the best practices of teaching transgender education in health professions programs. Inclusion criteria is the following:
(i) Currently teaching, or have in the past taught, transgender education in higher education at any level (undergraduate, graduate, or medical)
(ii) Teaching within the United States
(iii) Have at least a Master’s level degree
(iv) Teaching within either the health profession of mental health (counseling, social work, psychiatry, psychology, or marriage and family therapy), or a medical related profession such as, but not limited to, physical therapy, nursing, or dental
(v) Have a history of or currently still practicing clinically within their health profession.

Eligible participants will be asked to be part of a 60-90 minute interview that will take place either face-to-face, via Skype, or over the phone. The mode of communication will be decided between the participant and this researcher. If you are interested, please respond to this email.

This study has been approved by Simmons College Institutional Review Board. If you have any questions or concerns, or would like a copy of the IRB approval please feel free to contact me or my project chair, Dr. Becky Thompson at 617-521-2592.

If you know of anyone who would also be interested in this study, please feel free to pass email this to them. I thank you in advance for helping recruit participants for this study.
