The Southern California NIOSH Education and Research Center’s characteristics are embodied in a coordinated, interdisciplinary set of professional education, continuing education, research, and outreach activities that positively impact the region's and nation's occupational health and safety practice. The Center has seven programs, five at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), one at the University of California, Irvine (UC Irvine), and two center-wide programs. The UCLA programs are Industrial Hygiene, Occupational and Environmental Health Nursing, Center Administration and Planning, Continuing Education and Outreach. UC Irvine hosts the Occupational Medicine Program. The center-wide programs are the Pilot Project Research Training and Targeted Research Training Programs. Degrees offered by ERC programs include MPH, MS, MSN, PhD, DrPH, and residency certificates.
The ERC operates with the UCLA and UCI Centers for Occupational and Environmental Health (COEH). These are state-supported centers for research and teaching in occupational safety and health. Together the ERC and COEH represent a unique and effective partnership between state and federal funding.
