About Us

Our Mission

The UC Davis Medical Surveillance Program delivers comprehensive medical screening services in a focused and effective manner in order to increase the health, safety and well-being of California workers. We are committed to providing the most expert and meticulous patient care possible while striving to be responsive and adaptive to the needs of our clients. We value integrity and seek to balance in-depth medical screening with judicious use of resources.

 

Our History

The concept of a mobile clinic that provided occupational health services came about in the early 1980s.  At the time, our current Director of the UC Davis Center for Occupational & Environmental Health, Dr. Marc Schenker, was frustrated by the lack of knowledgeable occupational medicine providers in California’s rural areas.  By staffing our own mobile clinic, UC Davis could assure that the same quality medical care was being delivered to workers throughout California.  For nearly four decades, our mobile clinics have allowed us to offer employers the flexibility and convenience of on-site group screenings with this same excellent care.

Although occupational medicine has evolved over the past four decades, some fundamentals remain the same.  Today, our program is staffed with clinicians experienced in respirator protection, industrial exposures, and commercial driving.  Our team is comprised of board-certified occupational and environmental medicine physicians knowledgeable in the most current scientific and regulatory information from federal and Cal-OSHA, NIOSH, and the California Department of Public Health.  Our mid-level practitioners and staff are NIOSH-certified in spirometry and CAOHC-certified in audiometry.  With our decades of experience providing medical monitoring of workers, we continue to provide the highest level of care for your employees.
