The Future Occupational Physician - What Should His Training Be?
NIOSH 1979 Jun:145-146
The implementation of a university outreach program in occupational medicine that would permit physicians to gain academic training and credit by attending classes on a part time basis is considered. Recommended course work would include theories and methods of administration, program planning and evaluation, management courses, principles of laws and regulations, health care, economics, behavioral sciences, health education, clinical preventive medicine, maternal and child health care, mental health, oral health, population dynamics, genetics, and immunology. Occupational health course offerings on food, water, air, housing, industrial hygiene, occupational toxicology, waste disposal, insect and rodent control, and radiation also are recommended by the author.
