MAP ERC Training Programs

Training future leaders in the field


Through our Mountain & Plains Education and Research Center (MAP ERC), we create and support opportunities for graduate and post-graduate trainees to learn from accomplished faculty and other trainees in five different occupational health and safety disciplines. In addition, we offer tuition support, research funds, and stipends to qualified students. Four of the programs are located at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado, and one — occupational and environmental medicine — is located at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, Colorado. All of these programs offer interdisciplinary educational opportunities, such as shared classes and worksite visits, that teach students how to address real-world problems facing employers and workers.
