Injury prevention is a multidisciplinary field requiring collaboration between clinicians, public health practitioners, researchers, and community organizations. In an effort to connect clinical and public health domains at all career levels, we offer the following education and training opportunities:
- Lunch & Learn: The Injury Prevention program hosts quarterly virtual events on a variety of topics to raise awareness on best practices in the field on injury prevention. Each session consists of a panel discussion with content experts from around the country. Previous topics included falls prevention, community violence prevention, opioid use disorder, active transportation, and more. Visit the Lunch & Learn webpage to learn more.
- Injury Prevention Grand Rounds and Seminars: With joint sponsorship from Brigham’s Departments of Surgery and Emergency Medicine, the center will host annual grand rounds lectures dedicated to injury prevention topics. We also organize periodic small group seminars on injury prevention topics, providing an opportunity for small group discussion of emerging injury topics.
- Injury Prevention Fellowship. Building on the Stepping Strong Center’s focus on interdisciplinary, collaborative research, the Injury Prevention Fellowship—one of three Stepping Strong fellowships—provides an opportunity for young investigators to explore social science and public health principles while supporting the Injury Prevention program’s mission of reducing the number and severity of traumatic injuries in Boston and beyond.
