The Occupational Medicine Residency at the Colorado School of Public Health is an ACGME accredited two-year program. Residents in this program gain the qualifications to sit for board certification, earn a Master of Public Health degree with a concentration in Environmental and Occupational Health, and practice their skills in a wide variety of settings, from medical facilities to industry sites.
Residents are financially supported through the Mountain & Plains Education and Research Center (MAP ERC), Denver Health, and National Jewish. The MAP ERC is one of 18 National Institute of Occupational Health and Safety (NIOSH) Education and Research Centers in the country. As part of the MAP ERC, residents collaborate with graduate students in industrial hygiene, ergonomics, occupational health psychology, and health physics on interdisciplinary research, scholarly projects, and in-depth field assessments at local industrial sites.
