Ph.D. and Sc.D. in Occupational and Environmental Health
Doctoral research in occupational and environmental health leads to competency in one of the several domains of occupational or environmental health, including epidemiology, exposure assessment, clinical or laboratory toxicology, health promotion, and disease prevention. Areas of importance for study include the identification of causal factors; the precise delineation of dose-effect relationships; the development of techniques for early identification of adverse effects; contributions to scientific basis of monitoring including biologic and health effects monitoring; the evaluation of the effectiveness of preventive measures including health promotion; and an understanding of important pathophysiologic mechanisms involved in the development of occupational and environmental disease. Newer initiatives include assessment of the health risks associated with global environmental change, the built environment, urban sprawl and the social environment.
