The Institute of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (IOEM) is a World Health Organisation Collaboration Centre in Occupational Health and has links with scientists in many countries, including Norway, Finland, United States, Taiwan, China, Chile and Brazil.
The IOEM conducts research and teaching programmes in occupational and environmental medicine, including occupational epidemiology, ergonomics, toxicology, hygiene, and other related disciplines. The main focus of activity is related to the assessment and management of risks arising from work activities.
We have a history of welcoming both home and international students and many alumni maintain contact with the Institute, allowing us to continually build working relationships at a national and international level. Research is divided into two overlapping and complementary areas:
- Environment-oriented areas, which follow the tradition of preventive medicine with a focus on causal determinants
- Outcome-oriented areas, which are based on clinical medicine and epidemiology
- Doctoral and masters students are encouraged to seek the support and advice of senior staff for their studies and research career.
