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.
