The Transgender Health Project Shot Clinic is a group of concerned trans folks helping out other trans folks with their hormone shots. We can help you by administering your shots, teaching you to do the shots yourself and giving you free needles and supplies. We offer a needle exchange, informational / support group time and case management. We can hook you up with doctors and help you with different aspects of your transition

If you want to get your shot done at the shot clinic you will need to bring in your prescription, hormones and ID. Also you will need to sign a Medical Liability Form and fill out a demographic sheet.

request a Training

Does your clinic need a transgender health training?  How about your front desk staff?  Your health care students?

Our organization offers professional trainings on transgender basics and trans specific health concerns to health care professionals, clinic staff, and students in Minnesota. 

Based on our experience, the recommended minimum length is 2 hours, and we prefer to have 3 hours or more.  If you don't have that much time, please do still contact us and we'll see whether we can do a shorter training for you.

We work with each client to tailor the training to their needs, and negotiate rates on a case-by-case basis.

Recent trainings have included:
"Transgender Awareness in the Healthcare Setting" 
"Visit to the Doctor: A Transsexual's Perspective"
"Actualizing a Trans-Friendly Marriage and Family Therapy Practice"
"Transgender 101: Increasing an Understanding of Transgender Clients"
"Women's Health Services and Transgender Spectrum Patients"

To inquire about training, contact us.  We will call you back or reply to your email within two business days.
