Recently occupational medicine specialists in Tasmania have formed a “Not for Profit” Foundation – the Tasmanian Foundation for Occupational Medicine – TFOM to promote the discipline of occupational medicine in Tasmania. One of the principal objectives is to assist doctors wishing to specialise as Fellows of the Australasian Faculty of Occupational & Environmental Medicine.
Dr Barry Gilbert, a Launceston-based Public Health Physician and Occupational Medicine Specialist is the inaugural President, while Dr Andreas Ernst, Occupational Physician with Work Fit Tasmania is Treasurer. I have taken on the role of Public Officer and Secretary.
The TFOM monthly newsletter will replace the OMIT newsletter previously published on this site.
Visit the Foundation’s website www.tfom.org.au for more information.
