Whether you are brand new to occupational medicine or an experienced practitioner wanting a refreshing educational experience, the Foundations Live program is for you! Part of the ACOEM Essentials Program that leads to entry to ACOEM Fellowship, the Foundations Live Program is the powerhouse of education across the full ambit of occupational medicine practice. The two day Foundations Live program offers face to face education plus networking with occupational medicine thought leaders from around the globe. Foundations Live is open to occupational health professionals of all types.
The Foundations Live program is held for two days, before the ACOEM American Occupational Health Conference (AOHC) and in the same venue. You can register for the Foundations Live workshop without having to commit to enrolling for the full AOHC.
The Foundations Live program is part of a “hybrid” part online and part face-to-face program, comprising two days of in person learning and two sets of distance learning using state of the art learning activities. The current videos are being replaced with competency-based online learning courses. Completion of all three activities contributes to participation required for the Essentials Program.
