Inaugural INSIGHT REACH Program Recap!

By: Alexandra de Leon Date: June 28th, 2022

HIPRC’s Summer Research Training (INSIGHT) program for undergraduate, graduate, and first-year medical students offered a new free online extension program this year called REACH. Over 70 students from across the globe signed up for the inaugural virtual program.

INSIGHT REACH students were introduced to a variety of injury and violence prevention topics and received eight-week exclusive video access to injury prevention education modules and lectures. The curriculum was offered by leading injury and violence prevention experts. Students that completed the REACH program received a Certificate in Injury and Violence Prevention.

Students who attended this program say:

I appreciated how it was structured yet self-paced because it allowed me to learn and engage with the material remotely and still feel like I was a part of this community. I enjoyed learning about the material and the assignments were helpful in reviewing and reflecting on the information.

I would recommend this program to any post-bacc students going into medicine. I loved every part of it and I cannot thank the team enough for giving me this opportunity to participate.

I just want to say thank you very much for this opportunity and to everyone involved! It opened my eyes to many different ideas and methods on safety. I had no idea the extent of research behind each safety measure or various correlations between clinical presentations of patients and safety measures taken to reduce their risks of injury and violence. There were so many different topics that were covered in regards to safety and injury that have resonated with me and make me reflect during my studies. This program was very informative, and I am grateful that I had the opportunity to take part in it.

INSIGHT REACH is supported by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), it is a continuation of our NIH-funded program that will connect students globally with a shared interest in Injury and Violence Prevention Research.
