Careers in Public Health
Check out Pfizer's Guide to Careers in Public Health--"Advancing Healthy Populations." This guide provides a practical resource for making the most of opportunities across a broad range of career choices, offering 33 information-packed chapters that feature practice experiences and thoughtful essays by leaders in many public health fields.

Public health careers offer something for everyone. Epidemiology and biostatistics involve mathematics and modeling. Environmental health includes a wide range of science skills. Health administration and community health sciences are careers which involve being with people. Health education is a teacher's field. Health policy includes a political componant.

 Perhaps never has there been a more exciting time to pursue a career in public health. Why? Because....

  • Most experts agree that major advances in improvement of health over the next decades will not come from new medical findings or cures, but rather the broader development and application of population-based prevention programs.

     
  • Health services delivery systems are undergoing rapid change. Greater emphasis is being placed on health promotion and disease prevention as a means to reduce the costs of care by improving the health of our populations. These changes have created a broad array of new opportunities for professionals with advanced training in public health.

     
  • As the public has become better informed about the effects of toxic wastes and pollutants on their health, greater emphasis is being placed on assuring the safety of our communities as well as worker health and safety. As a result, there is growing demand for experts in environmental health and industrial hygiene.

     
  • Public health research is focusing more on women's health, and child and substance abuse, and an increased emphasis is being placed on behavioral change to prevent the risk of STDs, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and unplanned pregnancies. Greater emphasis is also being placed on school health and the health of minority and disadvantaged populations.
