  • IOMSCThe International Occupational Medicine Society Collaborative 

    Welcome to the website of the International Occupational Medicine Society Collaborative (IOMSC). The IOMSC was launched in 2013 by ACOEM and the United Kingdom's Society of Occupational Medicine (SOM). The IOMSC is designed to build stronger relationships between medical societies around the world that represent the physicians and other health professionals who promote the health of workers. 

    The collaborative was launched formally on May 1, 2013, during a meeting of 17 global occupational medicine societies in Orlando, Florida. To learn more about the collaborative, see the summary of the proceedings of the inaugural meeting of the IOMSC.

    During its inaugural meeting, occupational medicine leaders discussed the IOMSC and various aspects of global occupational medicine. Please view videos of those discussions, on this page.
