TThe OEM/OHN Fundamentals Course will provide instruction on basic (routine) Occupational Medicine (OM) and how it is practiced in the US Navy/DoD.

The course will cover the history of OM, workplace hazards, risk communication, Navy/DoD Occupational Health programs, worksite visits, and available resources. This is NOT a board review course, or intended to be a refresher course for those who are experienced or have taken the course previously.
