The Yale Occupational and Environmental Medicine Program (YOEMP) under the Department of Medicine at the Yale University School of Medicine provide comprehensive training for physicians in occupational and environmental medicine (OEM). This postgraduate training program was established in 1985, and first granted NIOSH-sponsored fellowships in 1988. In 1989, it was accredited by the ACGME, and it remains a fully accredited training program. The explicit goal of the program is to train physicians to be qualified, board eligible OEM clinicians as well as future teachers of occupational and environmental medicine. In addition, a select group of trainees receive further training to become scientific investigators in the field. During the grant period, areas of achievement include the continuation of an excellent track record for recruiting high-quality candidates into the field, board certification in occupational medicine of a majority of recent graduates, expansion of educational efforts within the medical school, including a mandatory Occupational Medicine clinical rotation for all junior residents in the Primary Care program, increase in research opportunities and research grants awarded to faculty, continued growth and development of clinical and consultative services in conjunction with the establishment of a permanent clinic facility dedicated to the provision of occupational medicine services, and augmentation of community outreach and educational activities.
