Resources for Trans Athletes and the Their Medical Providers

Mar 18, 2024

Even when I am not fully on-board with the language or values of a publication, I find it important to know the references available in your field. Here are couple of important readings regarding trans athletes for healthcare providers:

  • Brukner & Khan’s Clinical Sports Medicine. 5th ed. Volume 2. McGraw-Hill Education; 2019
    • Chapter 30 in Volume 2 discusses transgender and intersex athletes
  • PPE: Preparticipation Physical Evaluation Monograph. 5th ed. American Academy of Pediatrics; 2019
    • Overview of the preparticipation physical evaluation, including a systems-based approach with inclusion of special groups, such as transgender athletes.


Resources I recommend for both my colleages  to learn more and my patients who are athletes:

  • Follow on IG
  • Athlete Ally 
    • Focuses on ending homophobia and transphobia in sports through education and empowerment.
  • Campus Pride
    • Provides information about LGBTQ+ student athletes
  • LGBT SportSafe
    • Provides training for athletic coaches and administrators on how to create a more inclusive athletic community
  • Transathlete

  • World Anti-Doping Agency

  • You Can Play
    • Advocates for the inclusion of all LGBTQ+ in sports, including athletes, coaches, staff, and fans
