“Our mental health providers will work with you to help build and support your resilience in preparing for any post-surgical needs you may have.”
When did this become a responsibility for a university? And how many Wisconsin taxpayers even know that they’re funding this?

UW-Madison health services offers step-by-step guide for students to gender transition
The largest public university in Wisconsin offers its students a step-by-step guide on how to change their genders under its University Health Services program.
The University of Wisconsin-Madison’s “Trans Health” webpage provides direct links to five doctors in the area who provide hormone replacement therapy and explains the university’s health plan “does not require a student to get a letter from a mental health provider in support of hormones as long as they can provide informed consent for care.”
All a student needs to do to obtain gender transition treatment is show they understand “the risks and benefits, as well as reversible and irreversible effects, [and are] able to use this information to make a decision,” the website states.
The university’s Trans Health webpage provides a step-by-step list on how to start hormone replacement therapy.
The process is to book an appointment through the UHS online portal, meet with a doctor, sign the informed consent, then undergo a follow-up appointment during which the student and physician will “review lab results, discuss potential medical contraindications, and, if appropriate, receive a prescription for HRT,” it states.
The webpage also details how students may obtain gender transition surgery.
“Many bottom surgeries require a lengthy recovery period and may require numerous procedures, and it is not uncommon for complications to occur,” it states. “Our mental health providers will work with you to help build and support your resilience in preparing for any post-surgical needs you may have.”
The UW-Madison Trans Health webpage includes a variety of additional resources, including a link to Planned Parenthood’s “Hormone Therapy Self Injection Videos.”
