Transferred records should include medical and mental health documentation of initial evaluations related to hormonal therapy, as well as their most recent visits, labs related to treatment, and if applicable, their hormone/medication doses. Once received, the records will be reviewed and a decision made regarding transfer of care. Health center staff will contact the student for a clinical appointment if transfer of care is accepted.
