The commitment to epidemiological studies was strong, including field surveys, multidisciplinary research, and low level, long term exposures. Lectures, seminars and demonstrations also cover the areas of public health administration and the delivery of health care in industrial settings. The clinical program consisted of interpretation of chest roentgenograms, weekly attendance at an occupational medicine out patient clinic, assignment to the pulmonary medicine unit of the hospital, assignment to a labor union, and serving as part of a consulting service to staff of the hospital.
