Preparedness Education

The NYMC Center for Disaster Medicine (CDM) provides workshops, training and education to healthcare providers in the healthcare and public health sectors in order to be better prepared for natural or man-made disasters including mass casualty incidents and bioterrorism. CDM provides specially tailored programs for healthcare and public health professionals by reviewing the research and lessons learned from past events in order to improve future emergency response.

CDM has in-house expertise on healthcare and public health emergency preparedness and uses that knowledge and experience to improve the capabilities of the healthcare sector at the local, national and international level. CDM staff has shared lessons learned with healthcare professionals throughout New York State and as far as Spain.
