During the 3 year grant period from July 1, 1993 through June 30, 1996, the Occupational Medicine Residency program at the University of Pittsburgh graduated ten residents, all of whom entered employed in the specialty of industry, academia, hospital based clinics, military and government service. All who have taken specialty board examinations in Occupational Medicine have passed. Three resident physicians will complete the program in July of 1996 and three new resident physicians have been recruited and selected to begin the residency program in August of 1996. The program also has attracted physicians from other countries. The merging of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Health Service with the Occupational Medicine Clinic greatly increased both numbers and variety of patient populations available to Occupational Medicine Residents. Another training opportunity was provided by close collaboration with the Clinical Toxicology service at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Three physicians have been recruited to the full time core faculty to both strengthen the teaching and the clinical activities of the residency program.
