About Educational Programming

The National LGBT Health Education Center is dedicated to the lifelong learning of those who work in health care and health education. Our programs follow the principles of adult learning, recognizing that adults are self-directed, goal-oriented learners that need to see the relevance of the educational material and be able to apply it to their everyday practice. We offer a range of educational programs designed to meet the different learning styles, needs, and time constraints of our audiences. In order to assure that these materials are disseminated widely, we offer most of these for free, but request that individuals provide information about themselves when using on line materials so we can learn more about how you use the materials, and how we can improve on them. In addition, a growing number of our educational programs offer Continuing Medical Education (CME) and Continuing Education Units (CEU).

For more information, see About CME/CEU credit.

Our educational programming includes:

Online Learning Modules: Slidesets and handouts to help facilitate the teaching and learning of LGBT health topics to health care professionals and students. All of our modules are being updated in 2014, check back for each updated version! Learn more.

Webinars: Live and On-Demand webinars on how to improve the health care of LGBT people. Since October 2012, we have presented a monthly webinar series that features key topics on LGBT health and offers free CME/CEU credit. To stay updated on new webinars, sign up for our email updates.

Online Courses: Self-directed courses on LGBT health topics, with free CME/CEU credit available.

Live Education and Training Programs: We currently provide in-person trainings at regional, state, and national meetings, and through partnerships with other organizations, such as Primary Care Associations, State Departments of Public Health, Academic Medical Centers, Health Center Consortiums, Professional Societies, and others. See our Event Calendar for upcoming listings. Contact us if you wish to discuss a potential training or collaboration.

What people are saying about our programs

“We need more of this kind of programming specific to the growing diversity of our patients.”

“I very much appreciate the LGBT focus which is quite often ignored across the homeless, aging, women’s & men’s health, children’s and adolescent health, racial and ethnic minority health, rural health, etc… truly across all demographics. Thank you!”

“This will change and directly impact my practice.”

“Demonstrated cultural humility. Great job.”

“This is such an important piece of the physician/patient spectrum. It would be nice to see this information included in the medical student curriculum (early in training if possible).”

“Clear – great examples. Made me think.”
