AT CENTRAL MICHIGAN UNIVERSITY
 
Occupational health psychology (OHP) is an emerging specialty area within psychology. Research, education and training, and application of OHP principles focus on the mental and physical health, safety, and quality of work life of employees.
 
Typical topics include work-related stress, workplace incivility, employees' emotional and physical health, work-family relations, emotional labor, and behaviors related to workplace safety.
 
Ph.D. students in I/O psychology who wish to follow CMU's scientist-practitioner model for the OHP concentration enroll in elective classes in OHP and related areas (e.g., safety, epidemiology, and health professions), and they also conduct thesis or dissertation research on OHP topics.
