Abstract
Ways to improve the training and effectiveness of occupational physicians based on active collaboration between medicine and labor are discussed. The authors recommend that modifications be made to the medical curriculum, including the provision of courses in early detection and diagnosis of common occupational diseases, in depth work history preparation, screening techniques, technology and examination procedures, use of reference materials and regional specialty centers, and in epidemiological fundamentals. Medical academia and private practitioners should collaborate with unions with a strong commitment to employees health and safety, and student internships should be designed to include union collaboration. The collaborative program between the Department of Social Medicine at Montefiore Hospital and Medical Center, the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and the Oil, Chemical, and Atomic Workers International Union is described.
