For years, I’ve encouraged employers, brokers, and risk managers to develop a relationship with a good occupational medicine physician for pre-hire physicals, wellness promotion, disability, FMLA, and workers comp claims. At the end of April, I’ll be speaking to the annual conference of ACOEM at their on the intersection of the ADA, FMLA, and Workers Comp (see below). I also culled from the program additional classes these physicians will be attending, to help you understand why their expertise is so much more valuable to employers than that of their non-specialized peers.
To find an occupational medicine physician in your area, go to the ACOEM website at www.acoem.org and click on the upper right hand corner. You’ll be glad you did!
