    Dr. Meyer is Director of the Occupational Medicine Residency Program at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. He holds an MD from Cornell University Medical College and an MPH in Environmental Health from the Boston University School of Public Health. He joined the Mount Sinai faculty after holding positions in academic occupational health at West Virginia University, the University of Connecticut, and SUNY-Downstate, and in the UK at the University of Manchester. He was an NIH BIRCWH Scholar from 2003-2005 with a research focus on reproductive hazards and risks for low birth weight and prematurity, focusing on the psychosocial hazards of work, and health disparities in minority populations arising from work characteristics. Clinically he has established consultative services in occupational and environmental reproductive hazards for working women and those concerned with exposures in pregnancy, and developed guidance documents on environmental reproductive hazards, including the nail salon and beauty industry. Dr Meyer has served on the CDC/NIOSH Study Section for Occupational Safety and Health, and is associate editor of the journals Occupational Medicine (UK) and the American Journal of Industrial Medicine. He is a past president of the Association of Occupational and Environmental Clinics (AOEC), and directed occupational medicine residency programs at West Virginia, Connecticut and Mount Sinai. He currently directs and teaches the ACOEM Occupational Medicine Board Review course. Dr. Meyer was awarded the American College of Preventive Medicine's "Rising Star" award in 1998 for developing distance learning opportunities in West Virginia and Appalachia.

Industry Relationships

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.

Below are financial relationships with industry reported by Dr. Meyer during 2014 and/or 2015. Please note that this information may differ from information posted on corporate sites due to timing or classification differences.
