Do Ask, Do Tell: UCSF SOM asks Applicants about Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity

This year, for the first time, the UCSF School of Medicine is including on its secondary application optional questions about sexual orientation and gender identity. The change was the result of a multi-year collaboration between the School of Medicine’s Office of Admissions and students from the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Student Alliance (LGBTQSA). It arose from a shared desire to make the admissions experience more welcoming to students who identify with the LGBTQ community.
