La Roche University Introduces Two New Certificate Programs

PITTSBURGH, Jan. 22, 2021 – La Roche University announced today the addition of two fully online certificate programs – health leadership and global health care.

“Considering the current atmosphere due to the pandemic, a health certificate is very practical in a demanding and essential field,” Lauren Lanzino, DC, chair of the Health Science Department at La Roche, said.

The health leadership certificate will begin this spring, and the global health care certificate will launch this summer. Each can be used domestically or internationally in any health care setting. 

The health leadership certificate is designed for individuals seeking competencies in active and effective roles in the health care system. Students will gain the necessary tools to succeed and lead in the dynamic evolving health care industry upon completion.

The global health care certificate is built for those who would like to contribute to the improvement of health outcomes within various cultural populations.

“The importance of policies, social determinants of health and global health trends will be highlighted throughout the global health care certificate curriculum,” Dr. Lanzino said.

Both certificates are 12 credits each and open to all majors at La Roche except for the health leadership certificate, which is not available to medical imaging students. Anyone can apply for these certificates without completing a major at La Roche.
