The authors assessed the number of General Preventive Medicine Residency program directors who are involved in training residents on firearm injury prevention and the benefits and obstacles to such training as program directors perceive them. All 38 program directors in the US were contacted in spring 2008, initially with a three-wave mail survey, and then with email and telephone follow-up. Only a quarter of directors reported providing formal injury prevention training as part of the residency programs. These directors perceived more benefits to such training than directors who didn't offer it, but the groups did not differ regarding perceived obstacles.
