Occupational and Environmental Lung Diseases
The Yale Occupational and Environmental Medicine Program (YOEMP) is dedicated to preventing occupational and environmental illness and injury through educational training, clinical care, consultative activities, and research. Our faculty includes clinicians, epidemiologists, statisticians, industrial hygienists and lab scientists with expertise in a range of occupational and environmental health problems. We provide clinical and consultative services at the Yale Occupational and Environmental Medicine Program, Yale-New Haven Hospital, and VA Connecticut Health Care System for patients, and a range of employers, industries, and governmental agencies. In addition to our ACGME-accredited Occupational and Preventive Medicine Program, which offers fellowship training in Occupational and Environmental Medicine, we provide educational opportunities in occupational and environmental medicine for medical and public health students, and medical residents and fellows. Research areas include occupational asthma, health concerns among aging workers, noise-induced hearing loss, and human-animal health interactions.
