Juris Medicus has an occupational medicine expert who is board-certified by the American Board of Preventive Medicine.
Occupational medicine is a board-certified specialty under Preventive Medicine that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of work-related injuries and illnesses. The field of occupational medicine is one of the most wide-ranging medical specialties, dealing with health issues from orthopedics to psychiatry. It focuses on the health, safety, and productivity of workers while also fostering the prevention and management of occupational injury, illness, and disability.
Physicians trained in occupational medicine diagnose and treat work-related injuries much more effectively than most primary care physicians. As highly trained specialists, occupational medicine physicians enhance the health of workers through preventative medicine, clinical care, disability management, research, and education. They are up to date on federal and state regulations for workforce health and safety, including the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Department of Transportation (DOT), and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Occupational medicine physicians often work directly with employers, providing a unique bridge between the clinical/scientific medical community and the business-based community.
