Careers & Ideas: Public Healthcare Careers

The medical and healthcare field is seeing great demand for qualified workers. There is also a great demand for Public Health professionals. Here is some in-depth information on a career in Public Health:

Public Health involves the coordination of knowledge and practice among all these disciplines to promote and protect the health of individuals and our population.

Public Health professionals typically specialize and pursue career opportunities in one or more of these disciplines. They often obtain a masters in public health (MPH) degree, a joint degree with another field (public policy, social work, business) or a doctorate degree.

Many physicians also obtain an MPH either before, during or after medical school because they want to have a broader impact on the health of the population.

Public Health Professionals work in a wide variety of settings including public health departments, community clinics, academic or research institutions, community based organizations, bio-technology firms or Center for Disease Control.

They try to make a difference in critical public health issues such as HIV/AIDS, disease prevention, reduction in the incidence of major diseases such as cancer and cardiovascular disease, infant mortality, obesity, immunizations, community health status, health disparities and bio-terrorism preparedness. The may work on these and other critical issues both domestically and internationally.

Professionals with a degree in Public Health will enjoy a rewarding career helping society at large. This sector of the healthcare field will remain in high demand as our population continues to grow.
