  About the Department The Institute for Sexual and Gender Health (formerly the Program in Human Sexuality) is one of the largest clinical, teaching, and research institutions in the world specializing in human sexuality. We have a strong research agenda in sexual aggression and compulsive sexual behavior, transgender health, and women's sexual health that has been supported by millions of dollars in state and federal funding, and we have developed innovative and effective treatment approaches to sexual and gender problems. The Institute has led the way nationally and internationally in crucial, often controversial, sexual issues and has worked with local, national, and international health agencies to advance public health policies promoting sexual health. We encourage you to visit our website at http://www.sexualhealth.umn.edu/


The Department of Family Medicine and Community Health at the University of Minnesota was created more than 50 years ago in response to a legislative mandate to train primary care physicians. Since then, we have been leaders in transforming the specialty through education, research, and patient care. We are the academic sponsor of eight family medicine residencies—five in the Twin Cities, three in Greater Minnesota. We are involved in medical student education activities across the Medical School's two campuses: Twin Cities and Duluth. We sponsor four fellowship programs—sports medicine, hospice and palliative medicine, behavioral medicine, and human sexuality— and offer continuing medical education opportunities. We are regularly among the top National Institutes of Health-funded family medicine departments. Our faculty are actively researching health disparities, healthcare delivery, and population health.
