What is occupational and environmental medicine?

Occupational and environmental medicine has two key goals: to reduce work-related disability through accident prevention and to help injured employees return to full work capacity.

The occupational and environmental medicine specialists on the medical staff at Baylor Scott & White Health have a diverse background in psychology, chemical engineering, manufacturing technology, family practice, corporate medicine, medical flight examinations, sports medicine and public health.
