The MOH program may be completed within 1 year of full-time study, ending with a summative examination. It does not require students to complete a research project.  Occupational Medicine Residents are required to complete a research project in the course of the residency, but it is not required for the MOH degree which is part of their training. It is also designed to provide expert-level curricula while also fulfilling the course requirements to take the American Board of Preventive Medicine's certification examination.
