Abstract
This report described advancements made in the residency program for occupational and environmental medicine training at the University of Colorado during the grant period. With this grant the program has supported portions of tuition or stipends of five physician trainees in their residency. The entire curriculum of this program evolved during the last 4 years with the start of the residency. Modifications were made to the problem based learning course from a three quarter course to a year round course, incorporating the content of the orientation period during the first 7 weeks of the first year. In addition to training residents the program has trained physicians, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and medical students in occupational and environmental medicine. Interest has been stimulated in occupational medicine in five preventive medicine residents. Support has also been given to the thesis research of eight nonphysician masters-level students, and two postdoctoral fellows were brought into the occupational lung disease research career. Ten internal medicine residents have rotated through the occupational medicine service for a month or longer since 1991, with two entering the occupational medicine training program.
