This report briefly traced the development of the Occupational Health Educational Resource Center (ERC) at Johns Hopkins University from its beginnings in 1977 to the current time. NIOSH funds were responsible for the development of the present interdisciplinary educational program. An emphasis of the report was the contribution students who have participated in the programs made to the field of occupational health once they graduated. The industrial hygiene program has been accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology since 1990. Opportunities were being developed for joint degree programs with the Department of Geography and Environmental Engineering. The occupational health nursing program had a new masters degree option. In the area of occupational medicine, courses have been revised with the development of three course core curriculum with increased interdisciplinary emphasis. The area of occupational injury prevention and safety sciences added courses to expand its curriculum and developed multiple field experience sites for research training along with large databases capable of supporting occupational injury research. Continuing education and outreach has been expanded with several continuing education offerings being provided during the departmental Summer Institute.
