Occupational Injury Epidemiology and Prevention Program
Keshia M. Pollack, PhD, MPH
The Occupational Injury Epidemiology and Prevention program in the Department of Health Policy and Management stresses doctoral level education and training; however, the MPH degree program, with a Certificate in Injury Prevention and Control, is also available. The curriculum provides courses in the relevant areas of injury prevention, safety, quantitative and qualitative methods, prevention policy, and behavioral and social sciences. Among the skills mastered are occupational injury risk analysis, assessment, and reduction; injury epidemiology; critical evaluation of research data and recognition of deficiencies in the literature; ability to analyze data and provide recommendations to prevent or control injuries in the workplace. Students in the program usually enter careers in professional practice or in research and/or teaching at the university, government or the private sector level.
