Working in the field of public health can be considered a compassionate career because by becoming a public health worker, you are helping the community in which you are working improve their health standard. As a public health worker, you help people in that community overcome their health problem, assess the health level of their environment and prevent the emergence of diseases. Your job is usually administered by the government; however, you can also work with a non government organization that specializes in public health affairs.
To pursue this career, you have to earn master of public health (MPH) degree in any colleges or universities in this country. You can earn such degree by taking either on-campus or online MPH program. You can take the former if you have enough time to attend the class; otherwise, if you cannot attend the class regularly, you should consider taking the latter. During your study term, you will learn everything related to public health, including immunization, rural and urban health preservation and improvement, disease tracking and epidemiology, sanitation and pollution control, medical research, and public education campaigns related to health. You can earn your degree after you have accomplished your mph programs.
