Occupational and Environmental Medicine (OEM) at the University of Washington (UW) is a joint program between the Department of Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences (School of Public Health), the Department of Medicine and the Division of General Internal Medicine (School of Medicine).
The goal of UW OEM is to use evidence-based clinical approaches, cutting-edge research and interdisciplinary training to address regional and emerging occupational and environmental medicine needs.
Our OEM Clinic at Harborview Medical Center has served the occupational medicine needs of the state of Washington and the region since 1981. The clinic works with patients, labor, employers, community groups and others to prevent, diagnose and treat injuries and diseases caused or aggravated by work or community environmental exposures.
