Course Description

People born with intersex variations are different to each other and it is important not to have a blanket treatment option for all of them. Each person will have a different need and it is paramount to put their needs first, rather than the needs of societal expectations. The health of intersex people is often discussed and managed in tertiary centres with multidisciplinary teams consisting of paediatricians, surgeons and fertility specialists amongst others. It’s always a good idea to have referral services at hand, e.g. the Royal Children’s Hospital in Victoria.

Prerequisite note: if you haven't already, we recommend you check out our first short course on Terminology, which will help you to have an understanding of terms used in this course, including Sex, Gender and Sexuality. It is optional but will help set a foundational understanding of what these terms mean.
