The NWCOHS is proud to announce that two new academic research training programs have been funded by NIOSH and we are now accepting applications for traineeships that include student funding.
Construction Management Occupational Safety and Health (CMOSH) is a new track within the Master of Science in Construction Management degree program at the University of Washington. The track aims to produce future construction management leaders who will have the knowledge and skills to integrate project management and occupational health and safety for true project success. CMOSH students will have a well-rounded and interdisciplinary learning experience covering subjects from construction management, occupational health and safety, and industry practices. Contingent upon funding from the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, the CMOSH track will provide tuition waivers and monthly stipend benefits to highly qualified applicants who are U.S. citizens or U.S. Permanent Residents. Applications for the 2015 autumn enrollment are due on/before September 1 and candidates are strongly encouraged to contact the track faculty as early as possible to express their interests.

The Occupational Health at the Human-Animal Interface (OHHAI) research training program will support students in the development of new competencies for research and provision of preventive occupational health services to workers in a wide range of animal contact settings, ranging from research facilities to veterinary hospitals, zoos, and agriculture using an innovative and interdisciplinary “One Health” paradigm. OHHAI trainees will complete the requirements for the MPH in Environmental and Occupational Health in the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health Science, and take supplemental coursework in zoonotic infectious disease, ergonomics, and safety principles.
