Occupational medicine training grant.
Graduate School of Public Health, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 1993 Dec; :1-21
This final performance report concerned the occupational medicine training program for physicians offered at the University of Pittsburgh. After a period of inactivity, the occupational medicine residency training program was reinitiated in 1983; a NIOSH Training Grant was acquired in 1986. The primary purpose of the Occupational Medicine Residency has been to prepare physicians for the full time practice of occupational medicine. During the period from 1986 through 1993, the program has expanded to two full time faculty, three part time faculty, and numerous adjunct faculty. In its most recent years the program at the University has maintained its full quota of six residents. The availability of training grants has also increased the ability of the program to secure other sources of funding to support the residency. The research focus has expanded from its historical strengths in industrial hygiene, radiation health and toxicology, to include an emphasis on the molecular basis for environmental and occupational toxicology.
