Public health is an enormous field with nearly 450,000 professionals in the US. Public health workers keep the public safe from infectious disease, workplace injury, environmental toxins, and many other hazards. Because the field is so broad, there is room for people with diverse interests and many different types of skills. For the same reason, though, exploring public health careers can be daunting. Do you need an MPH degree? Do nurses and doctors need additional training to work in public health? And what is an epidemiologist, anyway?
101 Careers in Public Health provides an overview of the many options in public health and the many different roads to get there. It describes the training and degree requirements for each job and alerts readers to alternative pathways beyond the traditional MPH. With an emphasis on how each job contributes to better health in the workplace, community, or wider world, 101 Careers in Public Health encourages readers to follow their interests, find the right job, and help to make a difference.
