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.
The ultimate goal of this series is to promote the optimal health and safety of workers, workplaces, and the environment by:
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.
CEUs (CME or CEUs): Determination of CME credit is pending. Certifcates will be emailed to email address used during registration.
