Funding Opportunity: OCCUPATIONAL INJURY PREVENTION RESEARCH TRAINING PROGRAM (OIPRTP) at University of Minnesota

MCOHS

The Occupational Injury Prevention Research Training (OIPRT), in concert with programs in Occupational and Environmental Medicine, Occupational and Environmental Health Nursing, and Industrial Hygiene, among others, is part of the nationally funded Midwest Center for Occupational Health and Safety. This program provides a multifaceted and interdisciplinary approach to advanced academic and research training, with a primary goal to prevent and control occupational injuries.

Students will be engaged in course work and research in the general realm of injury epidemiology and control. Some examples of past and current research efforts, both epidemiological/surveillance and clinical investigations, have included agricultural trauma, low-back injury, repetitive motion trauma, health practices and injuries in the workplace, work-related amputations, transportation-related injuries, and work-related violence. Integral to these efforts is a basic understanding of dynamic interactions among the agents/energies (mechanical, chemical, thermal, electrical, radiation, etc.) and the hosts/worker populations within the environment.
