Abstract
The purpose of the education and training offered at the West Virginia University in the field of occupational health is to prepare clinician preventionists for the state and the region. During the period of this grant effort the residency program on site moved another step forward and was expected to receive full 5 year accreditation in the late fall. Growth of the faculty continued. Resident education and training continued to expand. A new program of outreach to small businesses in West Virginia was designed to increase educational experiences for residents, industrial hygiene and safety students in a real world environment, as well as boost public health within the state. Clinical practice through the Institute grew to be one of the busiest academic occupational medicine clinics nationally, and was unique in this region. The first combined physician and nonphysician class was matriculated in 1996 to the program which had been only a clinician oriented program prior to this time.
