Occupational Injury Epidemiology and Prevention Program



The Occupational Injury Epidemiology and Prevention (OIEP) program in the Department of Health Policy and Management stresses doctoral level education and training; however, master’s level training, with a Certificate in Injury and Violence Prevention, is also available.

The OIEP program curriculum provides training 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. With its placement in the Department of Health Policy and Management, OIEP trainees learn about policy change and how to conduct policy-relevant research. Graduates of the OIEP program usually enter careers in professional practice, academia, government, or the private sector.
