Training and Education
Training and education are critical for the ongoing growth and development of the injury prevention and control field. Our goal is to prepare public health researchers and practitioners to become future leaders in injury prevention and control.
The Center’s training and education activities are a critical component of our work. Many leaders in the field have received training in our degree programs, courses and institutes, magnifying the Center’s impact around the nation and the world.

The Center’s training and education activities ensure that we can attract new talent, equip injury professionals with state-of-the-art skills and abilities to conduct and translate research into practice, build effective partnerships and collaborations across sectors, and address emerging problems with innovative solutions.
Our work in this area is informed by the Nine Core Competencies for Injury and Violence Prevention. Training and education activities are available to JHSPH students, practicing professionals, researchers and the public.
The Center offers:
More courses related to injury and violence prevention than any other injury center or public health school in the world
A Certificate in Injury and Violence Prevention with some courses available online and on campus
Two Summer Institutes: Principles and Practice of Injury Prevention and Advanced Seminar in Injury Prevention
Paths of Study
The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health offers MPH and DrPH degrees, and Departments offer two doctoral degrees (PhD, ScD) and several master’s degrees (MSPH, MHS, MHA, and ScM).
Students interested in injury prevention and control may matriculate in several Departments, most commonly including Health Policy and Management, Health, Behavior and Society, International Health, Mental Health, and Population, Family and Reproductive Health. Each of these Departments has one or more core faculty members from the Center.
