WPATH is an international organization which focuses on global issues in transgender health. More local advocacy and policy can often be best accomplished by WPATH-affiliated regional associations. Each PATH has the advantage of WPATH affiliation while being able to focus activity and advocacy on the issues most important to that part of the world.

All US members of WPATH will automatically be members of USPATH. USPATH will be a nonprofit organization and will form when a Board of Directors is elected by the US members of WPATH. Then that board will solidify bylaws, organize committees, and conduct business under the WPATH umbrella.

Invitation to Participate

The United States Professional Association for Transgender Health (USPATH) invites the submission of abstracts for Oral and Poster sessions as well as State-of-the-Art Symposia to be considered for presentation at the USPATH 2023 Scientific Symposium (November 1 – 6, 2023). 
With the continued success of the WPATH and USPATH Scientific Symposia, we are thrilled to be able to bring you the USPATH scientific content via both an in-person and a virtual platform that will include plenary sessions, oral abstract sessions, mini symposia, as well as access to the posters. Courses that run concurrently will be recorded and available to watch later. This format will allow attendees to watch live or recorded sessions and receive credit hours for both.
The Steering Committee will work to schedule a program that will offer a great educational experience with a variety of viewing options. Our goal remains the same; to promote evidence-based care, education, research, public policy, and respect in transgender health.
