Occupational Medicine Journal Club is an educational and networking opportunity to discuss and debate the results of recently published research. Each meeting we will enjoy a networking dinner and discuss a recent article from a peer reviewed journal. Wine donations greatly appreciated.

Articles are selected on the basis of their usefulness to practitioners in terms of clinical practice and the care of worker populations at the programmatic level.
Learning Objectives: At the end of each session, you should be able to:
Interpret and explain a current occupational or environmental medicine research report;
Apply an interdisciplinary approach to diagnosis, treatment, and prevention strategies; and
Outline standards of care relevant to occupational and environmental health practice.
Your Best Reponse to a Changing World!
The Southwest Center for Occupational and Environmental Health (SWCOEH) supports research, education and outreach in occupational and environmental health. The SWCOEH is housed within the Department of Epidemiology, Human Genetics and Environmental Sciences of the UTHealth School of Public Health and is under the leadership of Elaine Symanski, PhD who serves as Director.
The SWCOEH was established in 1977 as a NIOSH-funded Education and Research Center (ERC), now one of 18 ERCs in the nation. In 1985, the SWCOEH became a World Health Organization Collaborating Centre for Occupational Health.
The mission of the SWCOEH Continuing Education (CE) Program is to serve as a training resource for professionals and decision-makers in the occupational and environmental health fields by delivering specialized courses in response to current training needs. Our ultimate goal is to improve occupational and environmental health. Our core subject areas are occupational medicine, industrial hygiene, occupational safety, hazardous substances and materials and occupational health nursing.
