Division Overview

The Mount Sinai Division of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (DOEM) is committed to preventing and treating occupational and environmental injury and illness through clinical services, education and research. Mount Sinai's groundbreaking history in identifying, treating, and preventing occupational-related illness encompasses a multi-disciplinary approach through specialized clinical centers.
