Occupational safety and health training grant.
NIOSH 2004 Sep; :1-41
The Wayne State University's Occupational and Environmental Medicine residency is competency-based training that uses "learning contracts" to provide clarity concerning the educational objectives of the various practicum rotations. This report highlights the changes to the Wayne State University's Occupational and Environmental Medicine (WSU/OEM) residency from July 2002 through June 2004. With regard to leadership, James N. Skupski, MD, MPH became the program director in January 2003. Also during this time period the Department of Family Medicine successfully recruited Bengt Arnetz MD, PhD, for the position of the OEM Division Director. Concerning programmatic structure, there have been important advancements in the development of "Guiding Plans" which complement the Learning Contracts used to assist the preceptors in their education of the residents. In addition, the practicum changes which had been instated previously have been enhanced. During this grant cycle five residents have graduated and successfully entered the practice of Occupational and Environmental Medicine. Wayne State University is proud of the progress that has been made in recent years, and remains committed to occupational health training.
