Introduction to the Program

Jeffrey Mandel, MD, MPH, Program Director

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.

Central to this training has been an emphasis on providing a solid clinical basis for the practice of occupational medicine and the management of patients with work-related health problems, as well as the identification and remediation of occupational risks and hazards in the workplace. Additional emphasis is given to research in this field. All residents complete a research project during their training under the supervision of experienced faculty.

The degree provided from this program is a Master of Public Health (MPH). Learn more about the degree.
