The Occupational Medicine Section’s purpose is to discuss topics relevant to the field of occupational medicine and improve the understanding of the physical, chemical and psychological hazards of work activities and advances in occupational health practice. It also promotes co-operation between the specialty of occupational medicine and other medical disciplines by providing a supportive learning environment and network for trainees.
The Occupational Medicine Section has a six-part webinar series starting from 14 October 2020 and will broadcast weekly on Wednesdays at 4:00pm.
Join us to dive into the occupational health challenges unique to six large work industries during the COVID-19 pandemic. This series aims to expand your knowledge of how different workplaces have responded to challenges and promote understanding between professional groups.
