Provides health professionals with a single, accessible, and interesting source to prepare for the field of occupational and environmental medicine. The new edition is extensively updated and includes questions for review in preparation for taking examinations.
This book is designed to be a thorough introduction to the field for physicians entering the field, whether preparing for specialty examinations or moving into the field from other medical specialties or from primary care. It also serves as a convenient guide for nurses and other health professionals and a reference for professionals outside healthcare who need a quick orientation.
