Through IAFF convention action in 1986, the occupational medicine residency program was established. The Johns Hopkins University, in conjunction with the IAFF, supports full-time medical residents each for a two-month rotation at the IAFF.

The medical residents provide technical medical assistance, develop educational materials, make educational presentations, and lobby at the federal, state and provincial governments.

As part of the program, medical residents are required to produce a membership education project related to occupational hazards encountered by fire fighters and paramedics. The following educational projects have been completed or updated by IAFF occupational medicine residents.
