Clinical & Academic
Primary Care In June, 1998, I carried most of my time from Occupational
Medicine back to primary care clinical medicine.
I have thus returned to the tumult and exhausting
glee of direct patient care, just about all of every day. Not much
to say about that on a web page… but it’s all-encompassing and fully
My clinical situation is as the internist among the
Medicine practice, and I share patients with a great group of faculty
As of January 1999, we have begun to admit our practice’s
patients to Durham Regional Hospital,
a community hospital which has only just recently
merged with Duke Medical Center.
It’s an interesting transition from our days as an in-patient service at
Occupational & Environmental Medicine
Our Occupational & Environmental Medicine group
is really a terrific team
and a wonderful group to share.
Clinical complicated situations, including determinations
regarding exposure-related disease
Bringing Occupational & Environmental
Medicine to Primary Care practitioners.
Dose Assessment for Environmental Exposures (esp
Chronic Beryllium Disease

Prevention and screening programs
Internet & Electronic resources
Electronic Outreach in Clinical and Public
Health Aspects of Occupational & Environmental Medicine
I founded the Occ-Env-Med-L maillist
and from that have developed the Web
resources for our specialty. That forum is now 5 years old, contains
nearly 2500 participants and exchanges about 300 broadcast messages monthly.
It’s the largest professional forum in Occupational & Environmental
I hope you like them, and that we continue to receive
interest and support from the clinical & Public Health Occupational
& Environmental Medicine community .
