Advanced Certificate in Cultural Competence
Larry Purnell I applaud and fully endorse CSI's Advanced Certificate in Cultural Competence. This program has it all: culturally-specific action plans across diverse practice settings for educators, practitioners, managers, and researchers. Graduates will enhance their cultural competence as well as the skills necessary to conduct culturally competent practice, education, and research and work more effectively with culturally diverse staff.

The Advanced Certificate in Cultural Competence program at CSI
is the first of its kind in the country.  It has been developed and designed to help health care professionals:

  • Advance and revitalize your career
  • Increase your earning potential, marketability, and promotional opportunities
  • Meet the health care and educational demands of an increasingly diverse population
  • Meet accrediting agency and professional association mandates for cultural competence education
