Occupational Medicine Residency

MSPH/MPH Curriculum

flu shot drive October 2014

You will have a choice between pursuing a MPH or MSPH at the #16 ranked College of Public Health in the nation.  Both tracks have a concentration in Occupational and Environmental Health.  The major difference between the two degrees is that the MSPH incorporates more time for research/thesis and requires a thesis defense whereas the MPH requires a less rigorous special project without a defense but with more required courses.  Tuition and fees for both tracks are funded through the NIOSH sponsored Sunshine ERC grant for all qualified candidates.  Unlike most other programs around the country, our College of Public Health has combined the traditional Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Behavioral Health, and Public Health History courses into two successive courses called Population Assessment 1 & 2, taken during the fall and spring semesters of the first year.

Occupational Medicine Residents curriculum will be customized to include: 

  • Occupational Medicine for the Health Professional
  • Industrial Hygiene
  • Safety and Health Administration
  • Occupational Health law
  • Occupational Epidemiology
  • Industrial Hygiene Aspects of Plant Operations
  • Public Health Seminar in Occupational Medicine
  • Occupational and Environmental Toxicology and Risk Assessment
