The University of Michigan Injury Prevention Center has worked closely with the the University of Michigan School of Public Health to develop a 12 to 13-credit Certificate in Injury Science, which will be offered through the University of Michigan School of Public Health (UM SPH).
A field placement/practicum is required for the Certificate in Injury Science. This may be fulfilled by your departmental internship requirement, through an Injury Science Independent Study (3 credits that do not count toward the 12-13 required), or through another relevant experience (e.g., work on an injury-related research project). The practicum must be in an area of injury science (e.g., violence prevention, prescription drug overdose, motor vehicle safety, traumatic brain injury) and be a minimum of 318 hours. The practicum must be pre-approved. Please e-mail UMInjuryCenter@umich.edu to inquire with "Certificate in Injury Science" in the subject line.
