CERTIFICATE in Injury and Violence Prevention

The Center offers a Certificate in Injury and Violence Prevention for both degree and non-degree seeking students. The Certificate addresses a pressing need for public health professionals with specialized training in the prevention, analysis, and control of intentional and unintentional injuries.

Students learn the fundamentals of assessing the impact of injuries on the public’s health, identifying groups at highest risk for various types of injuries, understanding the causes of injuries, and determining the most effective means of preventing injuries or reducing their severity.

Information on the Certificate in Injury and Violence Prevention or its requirements can be found here, and questions may be directed to Dr. Pollack at

Training & Education

For Melissa Spohn, the Summer Institute was the first chance to learn the science behind injury prevention. She rates the experience as one of the best continuing education opportunities she has had as a practicing public health professional. Spohn spreads the injury prevention message by integrating it throughout the health department system, helping to make her state safer.
