Physicians and Firearms: A Curriculum on Firearm Injury Prevention in Medical Practice
"Physicians and Firearms" is a curriculum developed by "SAFE: Scrubs Addressing the Firearm Epidemic," which is an organization of physicians, nurses, medical students, and other healthcare providers aiming to eliminate the personal and public health threat of gun violence in America through research and education. Our curriculum was designed to bridge the gap in medical education to address gun violence as a public health epidemic. The course is intended primarily for medical students, physicians, and other healthcare providers to understand the current state of gun violence in the United States, basic firearm terminology, and what we can do in the healthcare setting to prevent firearm injury for our patients. This self-paced course is divided into the three modules: "Epidemiology," "Firearm Basics," and "Providers and Firearms."
