Occupational Health Training
The UIC School of Public Health offers a residency in occupational medicine for practicing clinicians (occupational physicians, occupational nurses, primary care providers) seeking to build skills in public health and occupational and environmental medicine. Like other preventive medicine residencies, ours is one that will take you outside the hospital into the real world to apply your clinical and public health skills. Our residents provide health care and preventive services to a unique population: workers in their workplaces. They also learn how to perform investigations of workplace exposures, to conduct research on the epidemiology of workplace injuries, and they are prepared to provide expert opinion on occupational and environmental public health policy.
