The Certificate in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Health program is designed to address the complex issues confronting the health disparities and health-seeking behaviors of LGBT people. The sequence of courses examines health disparities, research, sampling and measurement methodologies involved in the study of LGBT populations, and the intersections of social identities/inequalities (such as those based on ethnicity, sexual orientation and sex/gender among others). 

The program is offered entirely online, and in a flexible format to provide qualified students and health professionals with an opportunity to acquire these credentials regardless of restrictions in time and physical location. Those who successfully complete the certificate program and wish to broaden their scope of public health education could purse an MPH degree program.
