This graduate course provides an overview of the distribution and determinants of injuries, methodological issues specific to injury epidemiology, and approaches to injury control. During the course, students examine the burden of injury at the local, national, and global levels, and identify risk factors for those injuries. Students explore major approaches to injury control, and their evaluation. In addition, there is a substantial focus on epidemiologic methods specific to injury epidemiology and control, including sources of data, study design, and methodological and statistical challenges. The course involves field data collection, as well as student-centered activities, including an opportunity to teach a session during the course of the term. The course is designed for public health graduate students, and other graduate students with an initial course in epidemiology.
