Research Projects

Seattle Waterfront

Doctoral trainees and post-doctoral fellows will have the opportunity to become involved in a wide range of occupational health services research projects. In general, two types of research projects will be available to program trainees:

  • Research concerning occupational health care delivered through the workers' compensation system
  • Field-based studies on health and safety topics, including keeping workers healthy to decrease injuries and increase productivity

The research mission of the Occupational Health Services Research Program focuses on questions pertaining to the delivery of occupational health services, health outcomes, and disability prevention.
