Transition refers broadly to any physical, mental, emotional or spiritual changes to align with a particular gendered identity or experience. While many trans people do not choose to transition, Stanford has resources for those students who decide to transition in some way during their time at Stanford.

Students can make an appointment online with a Vaden clinician with experience in transgender health care at the VadenPatient portal and checking the “Transgender Health Concerns” box. Providers strive to use whatever language students find most comfortable regarding sex, gender, and identity.
