About this Specialization
Applied Learning Project
There is one peer-reviewed assignment in Week 3 of every course, summarized below:
Course 1: learners will select a country, U.S. state, city or town and explore its health status by creating a "health profile," introducing learners to looking into health-related literature and help develop the skills necessary to recognize racial disparities in healthcare.
Course 2: learners will select a country or U.S. state and explore the healthcare structure by creating a "healthcare structure profile," teaching learners to gather factual statements about healthcare systems and develop the skills necessary to analyze the causes of racial/ethnic disparities in healthcare that stem from the system structure.
Course 3: learners will select a country or U.S. state and create an intervention to address a specific racial/ethnic disparity in healthcare, allowing them to think through the possible interventions and solutions to address a specific disparity in healthcare.
How the Specialization Works
A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.
Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.
Earn a Certificate
When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
