Abstract
The effectiveness of residency in training programs for occupational physicians is discussed. A clinical background including environmental physiology, industrial hygiene, epidemiology, biostatistics, toxicology, and occupational diseases is presupposed. The author concludes that an understanding of occupational health administration and the relationship of medical departments to management are invaluable. The ability to communicate clearly, particularly in writing is cited as another important factor in the training of occupational physicians.
