In addition to the trainings offered by HRC through our Learning Partners, we will consider giving HEI training credit to healthcare facilities for courses on LGBTQ cultural competency that are offered at their facility for their staff either in a group setting or through their facility Learning Management System (LMS).

Trainings sponsored by the healthcare facility and/or health system on LGBTQ topics

A healthcare facility may receive on-going training credit for course(s) that they sponsor on LGBTQ culturally competent care and/or specific LGBTQ health topics. In order for a facility to receive credit for their own training course on LGBTQ patient-centered care they must get the training course pre-approved by HEI staff. Facilities may either develop their own courses or bring in an outside trainer that is an expert in LGBTQ health issues. These courses may be offered in-person or online through a Learning Management System.

Pre-Approval Requirements

To obtain pre-approval, the facility must submit information about the training course, which includes:

  • Uploading a copy of the slides used in the presentation;
  • Uploading the biosketch or curriculum vitae of the presenter(s).

Course materials will be assessed based on the guidelines outlined below. Presenters will be assessed for relevant experience and expertise.
