Training and education are critical for the injury prevention and control field to attract new talent, and to ensure that injury professionals have the state-of-the-art skills and abilities to engage in translational research and practice; build partnerships and effectively work with multiple sectors and stakeholders; and address emerging problems with innovative solutions. Activities comprising the Center’s Training and Education (T&E) Core are designed to address these aforementioned needs, informed by the Nine Core Competencies for Injury and Violence Prevention, and geared towards University students, practicing professionals, researchers, and the public. Dr. Keshia Pollack is the Center’s Associate Director for Training and Education, and she oversees these activities. A summary of our T&E offerings is available here.
Students interested in injury prevention and control may matriculate in several Departments at the School, including Health Policy and Management; International Health; Health, Behavior and Society; and Population, Family and Reproductive Health, all of which have one or more Core Faculty members. The School offers the MPH degree and Departments offer three doctoral degrees (PhD, DrPH, ScD) and several master’s degrees (MSPH, MPP, MHA, and MHS).
