Association of Occupational and Environmental Clinics

What is AOEC?

The Association of Occupational and Environmental Clinics (AOEC) is an organization of clinics and individuals committed to improving the practice of occupational and environmental medicine through information sharing and collaborative research. Learn More

All AOEC member clinics have  multidisciplinary staff.  AOEC member clinics are not owned or managed by AOEC but meet specific criteria that provide high quality health care and agree to the Patients Bill of Rights.

AOEC regularly receives inquiries from prospective clients, unions, advocacy groups, and health agencies and directs these inquiries to the clinic members. The AOEC clinic directory is provided to a number of government agencies including the NIOSH toll free hotline, ATSDR Emergency Response line, OSHA, EEOC, and others as requested. AOEC clinics are also listed as a resource in the ATSDR Case Studies.
