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.
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 ten core competencies are availalbe at www.acoem.org.
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.
Established in 1916, the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (ACOEM) is the pre-eminent organization of occupational health professionals who champion the health and safety of workers, workplaces, and environments. Its mission is to provide leadership by educating health professionals and the public; stimulating research; enhancing the quality of practice; guiding public policy; and advancing the field of occupational and environmental medicine (OEM). In its leadership role, ACOEM sponsors educational activities for physicians and other health professionals, including courses and the annual spring AOHC.
