Research to Practice
The Research 2 Practice (r2p) initiative was established to ensure that research findings are transferred and translated into the workplace to prevent injury, illness, and fatalities.
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) provides stipend support and tuition reimbursement for eligible students enrolled in full-time programs of study.
ACADEMIC AND CONTINUING EDUCATION PROGRAMS
The Industrial Hygiene (IH) program is concerned with the health and safety of people at work, and the community at large. Specific concerns are with the recognition, evaluation and control of potential workplace hazards, including chemical, physical and biological agents; and the potential health threats to the community and the environment.
Occupational and Environmental Health Nursing
The Occupational and Environmental Health Nursing (OEHN) program prepares future leaders dedicated to the health and safety of people at work, their families, and the general community environment. Graduates work in a variety of settings – business, industry, health care and public health – to develop, manage and evaluate health services, programs, and policies designed to promote health and prevent work-related injuries and disease.
Occupational and Environmental Medicine
The goal of the Occupational and Environmental Medicine (OEM) Residency Training Program is to train physicians who will improve the health and safety of workers and be able to practice in a wide range of venues including government agencies, corporate health departments, clinical practice, or academia.
Occupational Health Services Research and Policy
The Occupational Health Services Research and Policy (OHSRP) training program is an innovative collaboration between the Division of Environmental Health Sciences (EnHS), and the Division of Health Policy and Management (HPM) in the School of Public Health at the University of Minnesota. The program prepares researchers who will help meet the demand for more rigorous evaluation of workplace policies and programs designed to reduce the nation’s burden of occupational illness and injury and to protect and promote the well-bring of the American workforce.
Occupational Injury Prevention
Occupational Injury Prevention (OIP), in concert with programs in Occupational and Environmental Medicine, Occupational and Environmental Health Nursing, and Industrial Hygiene, among others, is part of the nationally funded Midwest Center for Occupational Health and Safety. This program provides a multifaceted approach to advanced academic and research training, with a primary goal to prevent and control occupational injuries.
Occupational and Environmental Epidemiology
The purpose of the OEE is to provide doctoral-level training to the next generation of public health scientists in academia, governmental agencies, private industry, and non-governmental organizations who will address emerging and re-emerging occupational health problems of working people in the United States and globally, and master’s level training to individuals who will practice in the occupational safety and health arena. Graduates of the program will have the knowledge and skills needed to identify the causes of occupational related diseases, and how to improve the overall health of working populations.
The Midwest Center for Occupational Health and Safety (MCOHS) Continuing Education (CE) program’s mission is “to improve occupational/environmental health and safety through the transmission of knowledge, skills and understanding to those responsible for workplace health and safety.” The Continuing Education program offers face-to-face training and online courses.
