      This course introduces learners to intersex and explains what intersex means. It looks at two intersex figures from history before explaining the current medical model of intersex care and how it came about. The course then goes on to look at how early decisions made in medical settings can affect intersex people throughout the rest of their lives. It ends with suggestions on how changes might be made to achieve better outcomes for intersex people. 

      You can access the course material in book form here or continue on to the first chapter here. To receive a badge of completion, successfully complete the short quiz and the engage with the reflection activity.
