ABOUT OUR PROGRAM:
The Department of Public Health and Preventive Medicine in the College of Medicine at the University of Toledo Health Science Campus offers a Certificate in Occupational Health (COH) program in Industrial Hygiene. The flexible evening and weekend 15 semester credit curriculum consists of lecture, laboratory, and field experiences designed to increase students' knowledge, comprehension and skills of Industrial Hygiene. The Certificate program is for students that desire to augment their existing education and training via academic courses.
