The educational experience at OSHA’s national office in Washington, DC is designed to give residents an up-front opportunity to see how occupational health policy is developed and applied at the national level and to enhance their knowledge of public health issues in an occupational health setting.
Residents will spend two months at OSHA under the supervision of staff occupational and preventive medicine physicians and they will participate in the full range of OSHA activities, including:
In addition, the residents will conduct informational interviews of personnel from various OSHA offices to gain an understanding of the agency’s organizational structure and function. Each group of residents will also participate in a worksite investigation to obtain first-hand knowledge of the OSHA enforcement process. Finally, the two month rotation will culminate in a Resident Educational Conference for agency personnel.
Residents training in toxicology, occupational, preventive or aerospace medicine are eligible to apply (see How to Apply).
