Broaden your impact
Occupational and environmental medicine physicians are public health specialists who care for injured workers, work with employers to prevent injuries, and help develop policies to maintain worker health. We direct workers to get the care they need so that they can perform essential functions in our society.
Occupational physicians form personal relationships with patients where they witness and participate in meaningful improvement in patient health.
Better work-life balance
Occupational physicians experience a significantly lower burnout rate than those working in any other field of medicine. Why? Even as a resident, you can experience work-life balance with manageable schedules (including no night shifts).
In this particular program, residents also receive scholarships to earn their Master's in Public Health (MPH) degree as well as a Certificate in Total Worker Health®.
