Doctors in occupational medicine work as specialist clinicians and advisers to both the employer and employee on the relationship between work and health

You’ll help people stay at work or return to work after accident or illness. You’ll also have a key role in helping to prevent illness and injuries caused by work.  

Your work will be very varied, combining your medical practice with influencing and shaping the behaviour of individuals and organisations. You’ll combine your clinical knowledge with a detailed understanding of employment and anti-discrimination legislation, as well as environmental and health and safety law.
