Quality Interactions was founded by Joseph Betancourt, MD, MPH, Alexander Green, MD, MPH, and Emilio Carrillo, MD, MPH, to improve cross-cultural interactions in healthcare.
Their pioneering research in cultural competency was put into practice through an initial eLearning program in 2003, which has grown to include over 25 online courses and comprehensive service packages.
Today we are a certified Minority Business Enterprise that has trained over 250,000 healthcare professionals at the country’s largest hospitals, health plans, and medical schools.
