OCCUPATIONAL MEDICINE

The Specialty of Occupational Medicine

Occupational Medicine is the medical specialty that deals with all aspects of work-related injuries and illnesses. Although many physicians claim to practice "occupational medicine," most are not certified specialists. Occupational Medicine is a sub-specialty of the American Board of Preventive Medicine, and there are only about 3000 board-certified Occupational Medicine specialists practicing in the US. Occupational Medicine training encompasses the allied fields of environmental medicine and travel medicine.
