Occupational Physician

Occupational physicians are doctors who specialise in managing work-related conditions. They are recognised by the legal sector as having expertise in the inherent requirements of jobs, and in a person’s capacity for their particular work. Having trained for four years in occupational medicine, after completing their medical degree, occupational physicians have a unique understanding of the difficulties of a return to pre-accident work. They understand the problems experienced by injured and unwell clients with reduced capacity, including those with psychological injuries.
