About Us

The Department of Environmental and Occupational Health (EOH) promotes healthy living and working environments through research, teaching and service. We prepare students for an exciting and rewarding career with our comprehensive and rigorous program. Students are trained to anticipate, recognize, evaluate and control environmental and occupational factors that can influence the health of individuals and populations. In addition, the Regulatory Science Graduate Certificate fills an urgent need in educating students in understanding the impact and implementation of regulatory decisions and the science that supports those decisions.

The EOH faculty has varied yet complementary skills and research interests, with particular strengths in toxicology, exposure science, drug safety, hearing loss, environmental epigenetics, geospatial modeling, antimicrobials and food safety, dietary supplement research, tobacco research and biomarker discovery. The EOH faculty works in concert with partners across the university, clinicians, private sector and governmental agencies, such as the FDA and the Arkansas Department of Health, to meet the challenges of environmental and occupational health and regulatory science, and to provide hands-on, real-world training to our students.

The EOH department offices are located on the 1st floor of the Rahn College of Public Health building on the UAMS campus. Call today to schedule an appointment and learn how the UAMS Department of Environmental and Occupational Health can help you reach your educational and research goals.
