Job Overview

We are temporarily offering a signing bonus for this position of $1,000.

The mission of Lyon-Martin Health Services is to provide high quality, compassionate and trauma-informed medical, gynecological, and mental health care services to trans, non-binary, gender non-conforming, and intersex communities and cis-gender women with specific sensitivity to LGBQA sexual orientation, disability, race, ethnicity, and language, regardless of immigration status or ability to pay. 

We aim to address and eliminate health inequities for our communities by rooting our clinical practice in core foundational frameworks of intersectionality, self-determination, harm reduction, and reproductive and disability justice. As a community clinic, we believe our communities are best served by and for us; that’s why community outreach, engagement, and leadership development is central to our mission of community care and mutual aid. Lastly, we commit to increasing access to culturally responsive care beyond our walls through provider training and education, and policy advocacy.

The QTI BIPOC Health Care Fellowship is a 6 month workforce development opportunity for Queer, Transgender, Gender Non-Conforming, Non-Binary, and/or Intersex People of Color who want to enter into the medical or mental health professional field.

The Fellows will be provided with training, experience and mentorship that will help prepare them for employment in the healthcare field. At the conclusion of the fellowship, the Workforce Development Manager will support the fellows with creating resumes, job or school applications, and mock interviews. 

Applications for the upcoming fellowship cycle are due February 10, 2022. The upcoming fellowship cycle is March 15, 2022 - September 15, 2022.

Two fellows will be selected for each fellowship cycle. Selection will be based on demonstrated knowledge of QTI communities of color, as well as interest and capacity to commit to a 6-month program. Life experience will be prioritized over academic achievement or employment history.
