Certificate in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Health Overview LGBT populations hold a unique set of health needs often unaddressed in standard healthcare. Drexel’s accredited online Certificate in LGBT Health focuses on these concerns and the disparities particular to the LGBT community. The program places a strong emphasis on understanding the complex medical and ethical considerations involved in the study of LGBT healthcare, and examines 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.Program FeaturesFully online program is convenient for working professionalsOffered by the Department of Community Health & Prevention at Drexel University’s School of Public HealthLed by nationally recognized Dr. Randall Sell, ScD, whose experience investigating and measuring sexual minorities’ public health outcomes provide a foundation for the curriculum Curriculum Required Courses PBHL 674Studying Rare or Hidden Groups3.0PBHL 675LGBT Health Disparities3.0PBHL 676Intersectional Perspectives3.0Total Credits9.0View Course Descriptions Admissions Criteria A bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institutionRequired DocumentsA completed applicationOfficial transcripts from all universities or colleges and other post-secondary educational institutions (including trade schools) attended ResumeAdditional requirements for International StudentsHow to Submit Supporting Documents Tuition The tuition rate for the academic year 2015-2016 is $1064 per credit.
