Cornell Health Occupational Medicine serves Cornell staff, faculty, and students in Ithaca and at remote facilities across the state.

We collaborate with campus partners and local, regional, and state healthcare providers and public health agencies to prevent occupational and environmental injury and illness and support the university's research mission. Our office helps mitigate the harmful health effects of hazardous exposures that may occur during education, research, and university support activities. When injuries and illnesses cannot be prevented, our OM team provides medical consultations and clinical services to identify and manage cases, minimize disability, and enhance health and productivity.

Our occupational medicine team includes administrative staff, and medical and nursing professionals with certifications and training in occupational medicine, internal medicine, public health, hearing conservation, and spirometry.
