Doctors make an impact on public health, policy

Public Health Blood donationGaining an education in medicine doesn’t just have to be about dealing and treating patients directly. There are many areas that you can go into once you earn a degree in medicine – including that of public health.

Public health is a wide and exciting field that includes the likes of dealing with epidemics, environment, community health as well as policy and implementation. Furthermore, with a degree in medicine you can choose to do a master’s in public health and get into policy work where you will be part of teams that make recommendations to governments about public health policies.

There is much to gain with a degree in medicine apart from being a doctor – the options are actually limitless. The first step is of course to gain a place in university – which can be done with KSMU Edu Services. Get in touch with them for a free consultation!
