The mission of FICAP is to create safer communities through the systematic reduction of injury and its repercussions to the individual, family, and society. FICAP seeks to achieve its mission by stimulating firearm and injury research, supporting efforts to translate research findings into practice, and broadly disseminating information to policymakers.
The Firearm & Injury Center at Penn, founded in 1997, was established in the Division of Traumatology and Surgical Critical Care at the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center. FICAP is a unique collaboration among healthcare professionals, researchers and communities to address the magnitude and impact of firearm injury and violence.
