A trainee in Occupational Medicine must have experience in dealing with the impact of health on work, the effect of work on health, prevention of occupational injury and disease and the promotion of health, safety and welfare in the work environment. The training programme will produce a doctor trained as an attentive listener, a careful observer, an effective communicator and a capable clinician. The trainee will have a training system that provides guidance, teaching, assistance, appraisal, assessment and support. The duration of HST in occupational medicine is four years full time equivalent. Up to one year of research, or time spent in academic training, may be a constituent part of the four year programme, provided that the content is relevant to occupational medicine.
