The Northern California Educational Resource Center (NCERC) was established in 1982 to provide professional and research training at the graduate and post graduate levels in industrial hygiene (IH), occupational medicine (OM), and occupational health nursing (OHN). NCERC programs were conducted on three campuses of the University of California. This report covers the 5 year period (July 1, 1987 to June 30, 1992) during which the NCERC experienced continued growth. During this time 44% of the NCERC student body was enrolled in IH studies, 36% in OHN, and 20% in OM. Demands for graduates of the program appeared to be strong. Major changes and accomplishments in each of the program areas were highlighted. Newer courses developed included studies of ergonomics, industrial safety, exposure assessment, and risk management. New seminars were being developed concerning repetitive motion injuries associated with agricultural work, acute and chronic health effects associated with agricultural work, and regulatory trends and policy implications in the agricultural health and safety field. A listing was provided of the core faculty of each of the academic programs discussed. Profiles were included of four graduates from the program.
