UCSF Fellowship and Residency in Occupational and Environmental Medicine

The Fellowship and Residency training program in Occupational and Environmental Medicine (OEM) at the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) is accepting applications from June through September from qualified physicians for our post-graduate specialty training program beginning in July of 2009. Previous graduates of our program are leaders in environmental and occupational medicine in academics, government agencies, NGOs, and corporations.

Two-year sponsored training programs begin each year in July, and include a Master’s in Public Health degree from UC Berkeley, and a year of research, public policy and clinical experience that is tailored to the individual’s career interests. After completing the training, physicians are qualified to take the Board Examination in Preventive Medicine-Occupational and Environmental Medicine. Part-time training opportunities are available.

We are seeking physicians with a strong interest in environmental health, toxic chemicals, community health, and workplace safety. Preference is given to those who have completed a residency and are board certified in a primary specialty (such as Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, Ob/Gyn, or Emergency Medicine). In special circumstances we will accept individuals who have completed only a one-year internship but who have demonstrated leadership potential, interest and commitment to OEM.
