VUMC Clinic for Transgender Health Opens on August 24

After more than two years of planning, the new Vanderbilt Clinic for Transgender Health will open on Friday, Aug. 24. The clinic, open Friday afternoons to start, will provide comprehensive gender-affirming services in a single convenient location.

Initially, the clinic will co-locate in Bellevue at the Vanderbilt Walk-In Clinic before moving to its permanent home in One Hundred Oaks in January 2019.

Shayne Taylor, M.D., who's just finished residency at Vanderbilt and appointed to faculty, will serve as the clinic's first director. Adam Huggins, M.D., assistant professor in obstetrics and gynecology, will serve as the clinic's assistant director.

Patients seeking gender affirmation services can contact the Vanderbilt Program for LGBTQ Health for referrals at
