Next Gen U: War and Health

Date of Review: August, 2019

This is an 8 module online curriculum which comprehensive teaches about violence and peace work and the role doctors have in addressing the causes and managing the effects of violence and war. The conceptual framework of violence being a violation of human rights, the effects of violence, direct, structural and cultural, on health and relation of peace work to health work is introduced as well as the effects of specific weapons, and violence as it specifically relates to immigrants and intra-familial relationships (Domestic violence). The entire curriculum would need to be incorporated over several months since each module requires at least an hour of reviewing the module as well as extra time for readings and a the module’s quiz. At the end there is a final exam .It would be possible to use only 1 or 2 modules if desired. No certificate is given although the learner can request that the results of the course are shared with their institution. The curriculum is generally not, but occasionally is political as might be expected from this subject, and some learners may not agree with all the content–Barb Bayldon, MD, NCEAS
