I’ve recently heard about the major public health and would like to get more information on it. What do you learn for a public health degree? What do you do with a public health degree after graduating from college? I would appreciate any info regarding what a public health degree means. I would also love to hear from any who is majoring in it or who graduated with a public health degree.

Public Health Laboratory Practice –

Public health laboratory professionals perform tests on biological and environmental samples in order to diagnose, prevent, treat, and control infectious diseases in communities, to ensure the safety of our food, and water, to screen for the presence of certain diseases within communities and to respond to public health emergencies, like bioterrorism.

Public Health Policy –

Analyzing the impact of seat belt laws on traffic deaths; monitoring legislative activity on a bill that limits malpractice settlements; advocating for funding for a teen anti-smoking campaign. Professionals in public health policy work to improve the public’s health through legislative action at the local, state, and federal levels.

Public Health Practice –

Public health is an interdisciplinary field and professionals in many disciplines such as nursing, medicine, veterinary medicine, dentistry, and pharmacy routinely deal with public health issues. A degree in public health practice enables clinicians to apply public health principles to improve their practice.

Don Reels

A Bachelor’s degree in Public Health typically concentrates on two disciplines; Biostatistics and Epidemology.

The degree is quite new and students who major in Public Health will do anything from attend medical school to law school. Or work for a government agency such as the CDC or the NIH.

If you are interested in the public research and implementation of health services, than this degree may be of interest to you.

What are your long-term career goals?

I would suggest that you take a look at Pfizer’s “What is Public Health” website (listed below), so that you may get a better understanding of the Public Health Program.

Hope that helps!
