Academic Training

Training undergraduate and graduate students and mentoring doctoral candidates, postdoctoral fellows, junior faculty, and practitioners in injury science are central to our mission.  We are developing a strong pipeline of injury trainees/mentees at all stages, ranging from undergraduates and graduate students to postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty throughout the region, as well as offering continuing training opportunities to community practitioners. 

We invite those interested in cultivating their interests, knowledge, and/or skills in the area of injury to participate in our many educational programs and to attend our events.

 

The Injury Prevention Center has created a Massive Open Online Course on Injury Prevention for Children and Teens.

This course lays a broad foundation for pediatric injury prevention and will increase your understanding of this major public health issue through powerful, concise, up-to-date lectures, interviews, and demonstrations from a multidisciplinary panel of nationally-recognized injury prevention experts. This course is designed for multiple fields and levels of training, including healthcare, kinesiology, public policy, social work, pharmacy, dentistry, and psychology. The course is also appropriate for educators, coaches, child care providers, and parents.

As a learner, you will have the ability to select all modules or individual topics that interest you most. Feel free to speed up or slow down the videos as you need to.
