Reducing Racial Disparities in Health Care 

The DSC has just launched the Harvard online certificate course, Reducing Racial Disparities in Health Care, featuring many faculty and staff from Massachusetts General Hospital and Mass General Brigham. This course will help you deliver high-quality health care to all through organizational change.

In Reducing Racial Disparities in Health Care, you will examine the disparities that exist when serving a diverse population and approach each inequity head-on to learn more about the causes and how to eliminate these issues. By focusing on data collection and performance measurements unique to your organization, you will identify how core issues in care quality of ethnic and racial minority groups, which are often multifactorial, contribute to poorer health outcomes, lead to higher costs, and exemplify low-value health care.

This course is different (and complimentary) to our Disparities Leadership Program! 

  • It's an asynchronous online course that takes five weeks.

  • Learners will complete interactive modules with many of our key DLP faculty.

  • It's an excellent foundational course to bring leaders up to speed who cannot commit to a year-long program.

  • The certificate price is $950; discounts are offered to employees of nonprofit organizations and past DLP participants. 

  • Learners can get up to 22 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
