- Despite numerous attacks and threats both in the US and around the world, there is no standardized disaster preparedness curriculum for health profession students
- This project is the development and implementation of an IPE disaster preparedness curriculum with both a mandatory component and additional training as an elective at Thomas Jefferson University (TJU) in Philadelphia
- Upon completion of the elective component, students are Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Hospital Emergency Response Team (HERT) certified and become part of the hospital’s disaster response and decontamination team
