Training Pathways Available

There are two main training options available to residents within the occupational medicine residency training program:

1) The Traditional 2-year Training Program
The resident’s training includes classroom academics, and clinical training. All academic and residency training requirements for board eligibility are fulfilled. The goal of this track is to provide traditional training in the field of Occupational Medicine.

2) Complementary Pathway

The Complementary Pathway is designed to accommodate physicians who wish to make a mid-career shift into the practice of Preventive Medicine and to achieve certification by the ABPM in one of its three specialty areas – Aerospace Medicine, Occupational Medicine, or Public Health and General Preventive Medicine. This pathway recognizes prior postgraduate training in any clinical residency and current experience in a field of preventive medicine as a contribution toward training. This is supplemented by academic requirements and residency training in the desired field of preventive medicine.
