About Us

The Division of Occupational & Environmental Medicine (OEM), separately constituted at the UCSF Parnassus, Mount Zion, San Francisco General Hospital , and San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center campuses, is closely interlinked. It has achieved national and international recognition as a center for research, training, and clinical care in its field.

OEM Staff CollageMoreover as one of the few such Divisions firmly based within a Department of Medicine (most academic units are housed in a Department of Preventive Medicine or a School of Public Health), UCSF’s occupational and environmental medicine presence is particularly noteworthy in US academic internal medicine.

The mission of the Division of Occupational & Environmental Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco is to advance the field of occupational and environmental health through research, education, and service to patients and the community.
