Occupational and Environmental Epidemiology

 

The Occupational and Environmental Epidemiology (OEE) program offers training for students leading to the MS and PhD degrees. The program includes a required research field experience in which students will conduct research with outside governmental or non-governmental organizations. The field experience will provide our trainees with an invaluable learning experience as they apply their classroom skills in the real world, apprenticing under the close mentorship of public health practitioners.

The goal of the OEE program is to train graduates to be highly successful in conducting research and research related activities (e.g. surveillance, risk assessment and policymaking) in academia, government, not-for-profit organizations, and industry.

This is a particularly opportune time for building an Occupational and Environmental Epidemiology program at UIC since the Directors of the Division of Epidemiology and Biostatistics (Leslie Stayner), the Division of Environmental and Occupational Health (Linda Forst) and our Dean (Paul Brandt-Rauf) have extensive experience in conducting epidemiologic research on occupational health and safety. We are hopeful that the UIC SPH will develop into one of the strongest programs in Occupational and Environmental Epidemiology in the country and world.
