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 that 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 Research Training
Occupational Injury Prevention Research Training (OIPRT), 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
Description of the OEE program goes here.
Research to Practice
The Research to Practice (r2p) initiative was established in 2004 to ensure NIOSH-generated research findings were transferred and translated into the workplace to prevent injury, illness, and fatalities.
Grants ranging from $5,000 to a maximum of $20,000 are available to occupational health and safety (OHS) researchers in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
MCOHS offers professional face-to-face continuing education training courses and free online training modules in occupational health and safety core disciplines and interdisciplinary programs.
