The online Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Health Certificate is intended for graduate students and practicing healthcare professionals who wish to better understand and address health issues specific to the LGBT community.
LGBT populations hold a unique set of health needs often unaddressed in standard healthcare. Drexel’s Certificate in LGBT Health addresses these healthcare concerns and disparities particular to the LGBT community. The certificate places a strong emphasis on understanding the complex medical and ethical considerations involved in the study of LGBT healthcare.
The program is offered by the Department of Community Health & Prevention at Drexel University’s School of Public Health and is taught by its nationally-recognized on-campus faculty.
The LGBT Health certificate is composed of three online graduate courses that enable students to review health concerns faced by LGBT people and examine how sexual identities impact health and the subsequent treatment received. Participants will critique the research, sampling, and measurement methodologies used to investigate LGBT healthcare and its corresponding disparities.
The program is led by Dr. Randall Sell, ScD, associate professor in at the Drexel University School of Public Health. Dr. Sell’s experience investigating and measuring sexual minorities’ public health outcomes provide a foundation for the certificate’s curriculum.
