NOTICE: The project that is the subject of this report was approved by the Governing Board of the National Research Council, whose members are drawn from the councils of the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, and the Institute of Medicine. The members of the committee responsible for the report were chosen for their special competencies and with regard for appropriate balance. This report has been reviewed by a group other than the authors according to procedures approved by a Report Review Committee appointed by the members of the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, and the Institute of Medicine. The Institute of Medicine was chartered in 1970 by the National Academy of Sciences to enlist distinguished members of the appropriate professions in the examination of policy makers pertaining to the health of the public. In this, the Institute acts under both the Academy's 1863 congressional charter responsibility to be an adviser to the federal government and its own initiative in identifying issues of medical care, research, and education. This study was supported under a cooperative agreement through the Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Controt/Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry; National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences; and the Environmental Protection Agency (contract no.

This report is dedicated to the memory of Dr. James V. Warren, Study Director of the Committee on the Role of the Physician in Occupational and Environmental Medicine and Study Director Emeritus of the Committee on Enhancing the Practice of Occupational and Environmental Medicine. Dr. Warren's enthusiasm and intellectual curiosity energized both tOM committees. Initially skeptical, Dr. Warren became a fervent advocate for increasing the role of primary care physicians in occupational and environmental medicine. He was an inspiration to the many individuals who worked with him over the past four years. ... ///
