Centura Health Occupational Medicine
Occupational medicine (also known as “occupational health”) is focused on the treatment of work-related injuries and illnesses. Physicians trained in occupational medicine diagnose and treat work-related injuries much more effectively than most primary care physicians. They’re up-to-date on federal and state regulations for workforce health and safety, including Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Department of Transportation (DOT), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), so they can make the best treatment plans and perform regulatory examinations. Occupational medicine physicians often work directly with employers to keep businesses running and employees safe and healthy on the job.
