Occupational health education and research center.
NIOSH 2002 Sep; :1-83
The Johns Hopkins University Education and Research Center (ERC) in Occupational Health and Safety completed its twenty-fifth year of effort in 2002. The Center supports professional degree programs in Industrial Hygiene, Occupational Health Nursing, Occupational Medicine, and Occupational Injury Epidemiology and Prevention. In addition, there is a very effective Continuing Professional Education Program which is aimed at practicing occupational health professionals. Finally, the Outreach Program has always been extremely active and during this grant period has increased its activities in Region III. The Industrial Hygiene and Occupational Medicine programs are fully accredited; this option does not exist for the Occupational Health Nursing or Injury Prevention programs at this time. This report briefly traces the development of the ERC from its beginnings in 1977 to the current time. It is clear that NIOSH funds were fully responsible for the development of the outstanding interdisciplinary educational program that now exists at The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The ongoing challenge is securing sufficient funds to assist students in a time of high costs for graduate education. Significant features of each program and significant new developments during this grant period are described.
