George Washington University announced last week that its Columbian College of Arts and Sciences has launched a new graduate certificate program in LGBT health.
In a statement, the university said the new program will “train current and future healthcare leaders and policy advocates on issues relating to the health and well-being of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.”
The program is scheduled to enroll its first contingent of students in June, according to the university. It will include courses that focus on a wide range of issues, including psychological, medical, legal and policy related developments. A “hybrid curriculum” of on-campus and online offerings will include topics such as transgender care, marriage equality, and advocacy for underserved populations,” the statement says.
