Occupational and Environmental Medicine (OEM) is primarily an outpatient discipline, combining the practice of Internal Medicine with principles of Public Health. OEM includes a strong emphasis on multidisciplinary collaboration, involving the related disciplines of epidemiology, industrial hygiene and toxicology. The OEM Program works closely with Washington State agencies (e.g., Washington State Poison Control Center, the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries) and businesses to provide opportunities to learn about the role of physicians working in the field of OEM.
