NIOSH 1979 Jun:151-153
The need to include occupational health considerations in medical educational programs is discussed. An investigative project involving students from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and the Oil, Chemical, and Atomic Workers International Union at a New Jersey pharmaceutical manufacturing facility is described. The authors conclude that three accomplishments of the project were the discovery of occupational diseases and hazards, development of a technical advisory and advocate role for medical students, and supplementary medical training. The authors recommend curriculum redesign to include occupational health courses and clinical experiences related to the occupational health field.
