What is occupational medicine
Occupational medicine is a specialty devoted to the prevention, treatment, and management of occupational injury, illness, and disability, and the promotion of worker safety and health.
Residents must complete a scholarly project as part of their training and have the opportunity to participate in other educational experiences such as monthly journal clubs, weekly case competitions, and a field experience at Los Alamos National Laboratory. As part of
the MAP ERC—one of 18 National Institute of Occupational Health and
Safety (NIOSH) Education and Research Centers in the country—residents collaborate with graduate students in industrial
hygiene, ergonomics, occupational health psychology, and health physics
on interdisciplinary research, scholarly projects, and in-depth field
assessments at local industrial sites.
Residents selected for this program are financially supported through the MAP ERC
, Denver Health, and
National Jewish Health.
