Injury, including unintentional injury and intentional injury, is the leading cause of death in people aged ⩽44 years. Doctors often treat acute injuries, assist in the rehabilitation process and provide injury prevention guidance to patients. Current undergraduate medical school curriculums lack content and consistency in providing training in this area. A matrix to show the integration of injury control and prevention principles into existing undergraduate medical school curriculums is proposed.
- AAMC, Association of American Medical Colleges
- CDC, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
- CurrMIT, Curriculum Management and Information Tool
- NCIPC, National Center for Injury Prevention and Control
