Important Catalog Information
Due to the planned consolidation during the summer of 2020, of the University of South Florida, the University of South Florida St. Petersburg, and the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee, into a single university with a fully aligned and integrated curriculum and a single set of academic policies and procedures, any undergraduate or graduate student who matriculates at one of the three USF institutions on or after May 18, 2020, will adhere to the curricula, policies, and procedures described in the 2020-21 USF undergraduate or graduate catalog, respectively.
Concentration: Occupational Health (Code: OCC)
Starting in Fall 2018, this concentration has been consolidated into the Environmental and Occupational Health concentration.
The principal concerns of the occupational health professional are: the worker; the work environment and chemical, physical, and ergonomic and biological agents in the workplace. The curriculum is interdisciplinary in nature and scope, addressing topics in these broad areas. The Occupational Health concentration is a 43 credit program designed for either physicians in practice who are interested in the residency but can not spend 2 years away from their practice (They complete their MPH first while maintaining their practice and then spend only 1 year in the clinical residency program), or for other practicing health professionals.
