Education is essential to our mission.

Our mission is to be the hub for relevant, impactful, and cutting-edge injury control and prevention knowledge and research. We embrace emerging technology as a means to facilitate unique learning opportunities for our students and partners.

Student Opportunities

Students selected for mentorship and/or internship opportunities at the WVU ICRC are immersed in the field of injury control and prevention. Students work alongside nationally recognized experts in areas such as suicide prevention, drug addiction, and adverse childhood events. In addition, students receive opportunities for practical experience at the national, state, and local levels.

Professional Learning Opportunities

Public health practitioners, researchers, and health professionals recognize that the WVU ICRC is a reliable source for up-to-date research on injury control and prevention. Professionals receive information from us regularly through our digital platforms, participate in our asynchronous webinar series, Injury Control Connection, and listen to our podcast. We facilitate both informal and formal learning opportunities that can make a positive impact in partners' work.
