I loved it when after selecting an answer, an explanation was given as to why it was wrong/right as well as additional information not displayed in the videos . . . Thank you for putting together such a good course! Also, the medical student conducting the interviews did a phenomenal job!

I thought the balance of being informative but not overbearing was perfect and truly loved the breadth of material and learned a lot . . . and truly think that this is the best online class I have done so far and will 100% recommend it to all my friends before we graduate. Thank you again for taking the time to create it …

Pediatric Injury Prevention Elective, U-M Medical School

As a parent and someone who has an interest in health policy, I really enjoyed this course.  I especially liked the last module about how healthcare providers can play an advocacy role … I also enjoyed the motor vehicle safety portions because it is interesting to see the unique research done here at Michigan on that topic.

I really really enjoyed it! I thought it had really effective information presented in a good way. I liked the interview style format, and I appreciated the variety of visuals on the slides. I also really appreciated the fact that we aren’t really presented this information anywhere else in our medical school curriculum, and as someone going into pediatrics, this information is vital for taking care of my future patients. The impact of injury prevention in many ways can be greater than the impact of disease prevention in a pediatric population. I’m also very interested in advocacy, and actually participated in some of the opioid research you cited, so personally I really appreciated this course! Thank you for organizing it!

I thought the course itself was excellent – good mix of didactics and personal anecdotes that reinforced the concepts. I’ll try and spread the word that this should be taken by everyone, not just those going into Peds . . . the SPH faculty who spoke in the last few videos on advocacy should consider giving a talk to med students about her course material. I found that to be particularly insightful, especially given the current political climate. I know a lot of my classmates are looking for ways make a difference in the policy world but unfortunately don’t really know the first steps to take.

I am going into pediatrics, currently planning on primary care, and found the videos very helpful and would like to be able to go back to them during the rest of my M4 year if possible.
