LGBT Health Graduate Certificate Program
The LGBT Health Graduate Certificate program trains current and future healthcare leaders to develop strategies that address health issues and reduce health disparities for the LGBT population. Administered by the Professional Psychology Program, the one-year, 12-credit program provides students with a general knowledge of the psychological, medical, and policy-based issues faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) individuals.
Our students are professionals and future professionals in the field—physicians, nurses, psychologists, school counselors, administrators, policy analysts, educators, or social workers—provide care, manage care, and shape health care policy for LGBT people. Students meet and study with leaders in applied physical and mental health care and health policy from the government, academia, non-profits, and the for-profit private sector.
