Occupational and Environmental Medicine
The Occupational Medicine Core of the ERC is the Occupational and Environmental Medicine Residency Program, an ACGME accredited training experience in Preventive Medicine. Residents in this program gain the qualifications to sit for board certification by the American Board of Preventive Medicine, earn an HSPH Master of Public Health (MPH) degree with a concentration in environmental and occupational health, and practice their skills in a wide variety of settings, from medical facilities to industry sites. The ERC supports tuition and stipends for qualified trainees.
The two-year Master of Science in Occupational Hygiene program addresses assessment and control of chemical, physical, and microbiological hazards. Courses are structured to provide practical training in engineering design and testing of control systems and in advanced analytical procedures.
