We have an established network of designated physicians across the island of Newfoundland and in Labrador, and in other provinces throughout Canada. These physicians perform pre-employment medicals and independent medical assessments on behalf of our clients and report directly to the occupational medical advisor in the AOMS head office in St. John’s. Our physicians are provided with client specifications and AOMS guidelines to ensure adherence to occupational medicine’s principles of practice.
