This two-pronged educational opportunity — live course and online modules — will give you tools that empower you to take your practice to the next level. 

    The overall objectives of ACOEM’s Foundations of Occupational Medicine course, live and online, are to provide physicians and other healthcare professionals with:

    • A practical and comprehensive introduction to occupational medicine (OM), and
    • Information critical to managing the clinical, regulatory, and administrative functions of an OM practice at a primary care level.
