At the 2011 ASM we intend to address key aspects of Occupational Health practice including:

  • International Occupational Medicine
  • Academic Occupational Medicine
  • The Science of Occupational Medicine
  • The Psyche in Occupational Medicine

We have invited key international experts to share their knowledge with us and encourage good debate. You will see the programme set out in this web site.

We have also set aside time within the programme for oral presentations and posters. We invited all colleagues to submit abstracts – be they case histories, academic studies or policy reviews.

Our Conference venue will be the Waterfront Hall in Belfast and we are delighted to be using such a modern, well-equipped and centrally located facility. We have selected hotels which are close-by and within walking distance, to make use of Belfast’s compact centre.

Of course, the Irish are renowned for their warmth and hospitality and, alongside the educational aspect of the 2011 ASM, we have organised a full social programme. Making use of some of the most famous and impressive of Belfast’s buildings, our Welcome Reception, Pub Tour and Gala Dinner promise to provide fun to the networking opportunities.

Much has changed in Belfast over the last decade and it is now one of the most exciting and cosmopolitan destinations in Europe brimming full of dazzling new developments and intriguing cultural attractions. In 2009 over 7 million visitors came to the city and its international status as a ‘must-see’ destination is now affirmed.

We promise you a warm and friendly welcome, an excellent conference programme and “the best of crack”!

Dr Rodney Gamble, Chair, SOM ASM 2011
