The didactic component of the program consists of a weekly seminar series throughout the two years of the residency.
The goals of the didactic component are:
- To supplement the academic phase of the program with case-based clinical material specific to occupational/environmental medicine;
- To supplement the resident’s practicum experience with didactic material from the core OM competencies;
- To provide a vehicle for the evaluation of resident progress and achievement in research and practice across the two years of the program.
Conferences include research presentations, the joint Division of Occupational and Environmental Health/ Occupational and Environmental Epidemiology Journal Club, the Occupational Medicine Seminar series and grand rounds.
