Trainees in occupational and environmental medicine are the future of our profession and we are pleased to offer discount membership to them as well as educational opportunities to complement their training. Recent developments include our NEW educational series - Occupational Medicine 101, as well as virtual site visits and the ANZSOM Journal Club.
Occupational Medicine 101 Webinar Series
ANZSOM is pleased to announce the first in our "Occupational Medicine 101" series. This unique program is designed to connect you with the fundamental concepts of Occupational and Environmental Medicine and enable direct engagement with some of the leading experts in our field.
Reflecting our Sunday morning timeslot, the online sessions will be informal and not recorded, so as to encourage participation and interaction. While ideally suited to trainees, all members will find this a beneficial format for exploring and sharing the essentials of our specialty.
The first session will feature ANZSOM member, Occupational and Environmental Physician and Director of Resile, Dr Robert McCartney who will provide an overview of occupational medicine - what it is, the pros and cons, the future of work and what it will look like, challenges and areas of focus.
