The mission of Lyon-Martin Health Services is to provide high quality, compassionate and trauma-informed medical, gynecological, and mental health care services to trans, non-binary, gender non-conforming, and intersex communities and cis-gender women with specific sensitivity to sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, race, ethnicity, and language regardless of immigration status or ability to pay. We aim to address and eliminate health equities for our communities by rooting our clinical practice in core foundational frameworks of intersectionality, self-determination, harm reduction, and reproductive and disability justice. As a community clinic, we believe our communities are best served by and for us; that’s why community outreach, engagement, and leadership development is central to our mission of community care and mutual aid. Lastly, we commit to increasing access to culturally responsive care beyond our walls through provider training and education, and policy advocacy.
The Primary Care Physician is responsible for diagnosis and treatment of Lyon-Martin patients presenting for medical care, for providing such care in a sensitive and non-judgmental manner, and for making appropriate internal and external referrals. The physician will provide after hours coverage for the clinic by telephone on a rotating basis (an average of once every 6 weeks). They oversee nurse practitioners and have the opportunity to teach medical and nursing students and residents. They will work closely with behavioral health providers to provide a holistic and integrated model of care. They are expected to maintain a high degree of professional competence and the highest possible ethical standards, and to function as part of an integrated care-giving team.
