The Future Occupational Physician - What Should His Training Be?
NIOSH 1979 Jun:134-135
A University of Minnesota program for training physicians in occupational medicine is described. The first 2 years of the 4 year program are devoted to primary patient care. Courses presented at the School of Public Health leading to a masters degree in public health are standard ones in epidemiology, biometry, environmental health, and toxicology. Courses in preventive medicine including health education, drug dependency, nutrition and cardiovascular rehabilitation and risk factor reduction are encouraged. A clinical year in occupational medicine, including rotation through a variety of industrial settings and medical specialities, is detailed. The author anticipates that persons who complete the program will be eligible to practice in both internal and occupational medicine.
