Project Instructor: Charles Mock, MD, PhD, MPH

An injury-control course oriented to the circumstances of developing countries was developed by Dr. Charles Mock in collaboration with colleagues from other countries based on specific needs of the country. The training has been conducted three times in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico, in collaboration with the Instituto Tecnologico y Estudios Superiores de Monterrey. Over 150 professionals have attended, coming from a variety of disciplines, including medicine, public health, education and law enforcement.

In Ghana, a week-long continuing medical education course in trauma treatment, oriented toward rural hospitals in Africa was developed. This collaborative effort is offered by the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in Kumasi, Ghana. It has been conducted in Kumasi annually for the past five years and attended by over 100 doctors from rural hospitals throughout Ghana.
