Program for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Health
Drexel University Online, a premier provider of online higher education, and the Dornsife School of Public Health are pleased to offer the Certificate in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Health.
The LGBT Health certificate is intended for graduate students and practicing healthcare professionals who wish to better understand and address health issues specific to various and diverse LGBT populations. Through a series of online graduate level courses, participants will gain advanced training in the research, sampling and measurement methodologies used to investigate LGBT health and health disparities.
“Public health experts are just starting to uncover the diverse set of issues relevant to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, and they are developing the tools necessary to study these populations effectively,” said Randall Sell, ScD, (left), professor in the Department of Community Health & Prevention at Dornsife.
"The methods and concepts used in the practice of public health research, including programming and program evaluations, must often be modified in order to apply to rare, stigmatized and/or hidden groups.
“The certificate will enhance students' knowledge of these concepts and explore how such methods can be adapted most effectively in practice with LGBT people and others,” said Sell.
The online LGBT certificate program is led by Sell, whose experience investigating and measuring sexual minorities’ public health outcomes provide a foundation for the curriculum.
The certificate is taught by nationally‐recognized faculty from Dornsife. For more information on this program or to enroll, please visit Drexel University Online.
This program is also available as a graduate minor in LGBT health.
