Medical Advisorship Program

Comprehensive personalized occupational medical expertise for the cost-conscious corporation

Part-time, board certified,  faculty physician advisors provide a flexible, cost-effective solution to meet the needs for a part-time corporate medical department or external chart review. Through this innovative program, our corporate partners enjoy the confidential, individualized advice of a single faculty member with the backup of our entire group, thus providing years of experience in the field of occupational and environmental medicine to each issue that arises.
