- Our partners and supporters
With our wonderful progress on these three initiatives, we are poised to move the Program to an Institute level at the University of Minnesota. As the Program prepares for our 50th Anniversary, we will create a lasting legacy which will be impactful in ways that our founders only dreamed about.
We have a strong research agenda in HIV prevention, sexual aggression and compulsive sexual behavior, transgender health, and women’s sexual health. Our research is supported by millions of dollars in state and federal funding. We have developed innovative and effective treatment approaches to sexual problems.
We serve individuals, couples, and families of all backgrounds and ages. No referral needed.

Education & Training
The Program in Human Sexuality (PHS) provides education in human sexuality in the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health, the Medical School, the University of Minnesota, and the wider community.
Comprehensive sexual health cannot be achieved without comprehensive sexual rights. Program in Human Sexuality (PHS) faculty work to raise awareness of sexual rights as an inherent part of universal human rights based on freedom, dignity, and equality.
Letters from the Chair in Sexual Health
by Eli Coleman, PhD
This was an amazing year for the Program in Human Sexuality. We have had a significant increase in the number of publications and grant activity. Our clinical services continue to transform lives, even when the increased clientele constitutes a waitlist. We have made major revisions to our human sexuality course for medical students, which is still one of the finest in the country.
