Examples of funded projects...
Training grants are available in two forms. EDUCATION AND RESEARCH CENTERS (ERC): Projects are funded in support of establishing and operating an Education and Research Center. The ERC's are designed to provide multidisciplinary training for students in the core program areas of occupational medicine, occupational health nursing, industrial hygiene, and occupational safety, primarily at the graduate level and in related disciplines such as occupational injury prevention, occupational epidemiology, ergonomics, etc.. The ERC program also is intended to afford opportunity for full- and part-time academic career training, for cross training of occupational safety and health practitioners, for mid-career training in the field of occupational health and safety, and access to many different and relevant courses for students pursuing various degrees. An example is the existence of one ERC which provides academic and research training for nurses, physicians, industrial hygienists, epidemiologists, injury prevention specialists and also provides continuing education for practitioners and outreach programs in the region through a visiting scholars program. LONG-TERM TRAINING PROJECT GRANTS: Support is available for the establishment, strengthening, or expansion of graduate, undergraduate, and special training programs in the occupational safety and health fields. The types of training currently eligible for support are: graduate training for practice, teaching, and research careers in occupational safety and health; undergraduate training providing trainees with capabilities for positions in occupational safety and health professions; and special technical or other programs for training of occupational safety and health paraprofessionals or specialists. Four example programs are currently funded which provide the following: a graduate industrial hygiene program; an undergraduate program to train paraprofessionals in occupational health and safety; a graduate nursing program to train nurse practitioners; and, an occupational medicine program which provides residency training through an alternate pathway of distance learning.
