AOHC: ACOEM American Occupational Health Conference – American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine
April 29 - May 2$995
AOHC serves two fundamental purposes: it is the premier professional meeting for physicians and other health professionals who have an interest in the fields of occupational and environmental medicine (OEM), and it is the annual membership meeting for ACOEM’s members.
Educational Needs and Objectives
OEM is the medical specialty devoted to the prevention and management of occupational and environmental injury, illness, and disability, and the promotion of health and productivity of workers, their families, and communities. ACOEM has identified core competencies in areas where the OEM-trained physician should strive to remain current and serve as a knowledgeable representative of the specialty.
The ACOEM CME mission is to provide educational activities that enhance the professional capabilities related directly to the professional work of physicians practicing occupational and environmental medicine and (1) to promote physician lifelong and self-directed learning, (2) to improve worker/patient clinical outcomes, and (3) to facilitate physician effectiveness and efficiency in carrying out professional responsibilities.
To address the educational needs of OEM physicians, AOHC is planned within the context of desirable physician attributes and aligned with the OEM core competencies.
AOHC content is designed to enhance physician competence and performance and to improve patient outcomes by providing learner-centered education in the most current issues relevant to the practice of OEM.
