Thank you for your interest in our Occupational Medicine Residency Training Program at the University of Iowa. Occupational and environmental medicine includes the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases and injuries resulting from occupational and environmental exposures. We are a well-established program with a superb track record of board passage and resident job placement following training.
We offer a broad range of clinical, industrial, government, and research training experiences. In addition to practical clinical training, residents also earn a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree. Our program has been continuously accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) since 1987.
Our first-rate training programs will expose you to the widest range of patients and learning situations. Our community will provide a high quality of living. And you'll find a salary and benefit package that competes favorably with accredited programs in an academic medical setting.
A mentor of mine once said that when I found the right medical specialty, I would just "know". I was surprised and elated when I experienced that moment and found occupational medicine. Seasoned physicians and new residents alike seemed genuinely happy and told me they would make the same specialty choice again in an instant. Based on recommendations from previous residents regarding the strengths of this program, I chose to return to Iowa City for occupational medicine residency.
I am a mid-career professional with interest and commitment to both clinical medicine and public health. Having worked within the public health and patient care systems in Iowa, I have come to appreciate the Iowa tradition of excellence across all healthcare domains. The University of Iowa Occupational Medicine Residency Training Program has a history of stability and excellence.
I chose Iowa because of its well-rounded occupational medicine program and the location is great for my family. The program was very accommodating to my Air Force requirements while interviewing. The program is small enough to get great interaction with each attending, while offering many opportunities for electives and tailoring the program to your goals and future practice ambitions.
