LGBTQ Patient-Centered Training
For the past several years, UCLA Health has been recognized as one of the "Leaders in LGBTQ Healthcare Equality" by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, the educational arm of the country's largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender civil rights organization. We are very proud of this distinction, and we are prepared to continue to lead the way in this area in the coming year and beyond.
We are offering employees expert training in LGBTQ patient-centered care via two methods: online or in-person.
- Online: All online training is free. Participants may take as many or as few online courses as they would like. Employees who have previously participated may take additional courses. The online training topics range from the basics of LGBTQ patient-centered care to more specialized topics for clinicians. CME/CEU credits may be available after completing the training courses; please check with the relevant professional licensing body.
