New SPHPM short course in Environmental Medicine

Occupational and environmental health is dynamic and constantly evolving aspect of public health. The Monash Centre for Occupational and Environmental Health (MonCOEH), in SPHPM’s Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine (DEPM), is one of Australia's leading research and education centres in this field. The Centre undertakes important research in the area and offers a wide range of postgraduate and short courses, including the new Monash Certificate in Environmental Medicine.

The course designed to strengthen the ability of doctors and other health professionals to address health relevant environmental issues related to industrial activity.  It will give practitioners with clinical roles the theoretical foundations, legal framework and practical clinical skills in managing patients who present with problems resulting from environmental sources.

Delivered by medical specialists and experts in the field of environmental medicine and health, MonCOEH received an Australasian Faculty of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (AFOEM) Education Development Grant to develop this course. Topics will cover a broad spectrum of areas including toxicology, cluster investigations, environmental exposure, illness related to environmental hazards, and managing conflicting views from stakeholders in relation to environmental hazards.

The course will align to SPHPM’s commitment to innovative and dynamic teaching with a mixture of presentations, case studies, group exercises and role plays to apply participants' knowledge and develop their skills.  Through pre-reading, participants will be encouraged to develop basic understanding before the course starts.  There will be a written assessment at the conclusion of the course.

Registrations are now open for this new week long short course that will run from Monday 22 to Friday 26 February 2016. Click here to learn more.
