Occupational Medicine

The course is intended for those doctors wishing to embark on a career in occupational medicine. Occupational medicine is the medical specialty which covers the multi-faceted relationship between health and work. It is concerned with ensuring that workplaces and work practices are safe and not detrimental to employees’ health, and that employees are fit for the job they are doing. If there are problems, either with the workplace or with an employee’s fitness, the occupational physician’s role is to advise on adjustments to the workplace, and/or to give appropriate advice and support to the employee.

The occupational physician must have not only a sound clinical background but also knowledge of employment and anti-discrimination legislation, as well as of environmental and health and safety law. Occupational physicians have to be able to identify, assess the risk to health of works, and know how to control workplace hazards and also know how to recognise, prevent and manage occupational disease.
The major components of the Postgraduate curriculum shall be to provide doctors with theoretical knowledge, practical and clinical skills, thesis skills, attitudes including communication skills and training in Occupational Medicine.
