Occupational Medicine Journal Club is an educational and networking opportunity to discuss and debate the results of recently published research. During each meeting, we will discuss a recent article from a peer reviewed journal.

The ultimate goal of this series is to promote the optimal health and safety of workers, workplaces, and the environment by:

  • Educating healthcare professionals and public health professionals;
  • Stimulating research;
  • Enhancing quality of practice;
  • Guiding public policy; and
  • Advancing the field of occupational and environmental medicine.

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, attendees 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.


This event was made possible by the Southwest Center for Occupational and Environmental Health (SWCOEH), through award no. T42OH008421 from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) of the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention.
