The second component of OEHF’s mission is education. A major goal of the Foundation is to provide support to graduate medical education in occupational and environmental health as well as educate other health professionals about opportunities in occupational and environmental health. Additionally, OEHF strives to encourage, through research, the development of educational programs in the workplace.

OEHF has partnered with the existing Occupational Physicians Scholarship Fund (OPSF) to continue to offer scholarships to residents in occupational medicine. These scholarships assures the continuation of a cadre of physicians versed in occupational and environmental health issues in the workplace.
