The Bloomberg School's Occupational and Environmental Medicine Training Program is a two-year program for physicians that includes both an MPH degree and practicum rotations.
Established in 1978 to address a need for physicians with skills to protect the health of working populations, the program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. It prepares physicians for board certification by the American Board of Preventive Medicine.
The program is located in the Division of Occupational and Environmental Health of the Department of Environmental Health Sciences at the Bloomberg School. It is also a component of the Johns Hopkins Education and Research Center for Occupational Safety and Health which is funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.
Rotations include clinical sites, employer-based sites, regulatory agencies, labor unions, corporations and government sites.
Trainees are supported with a stipend, benefits, MPH tuition and malpractice insurance.
Although listed as a residency by the ACGME, many of our trainees are board-certified or board-eligible in a primary care specialty, such as internal, family or emergency medicine, and are fellows in our program.
