Public Health at Ohio State
Thank you for expressing an interest in the profession of public health.
The Association of Schools of Public Health estimates that 250,000 more public health workers will be needed by 2020. This challenge is compounded by the fact that 23 percent of the country's current workforce -- almost 110,000 workers -- is eligible for retirement.
We need more public health biostatisticians, clinicians, environmental health specialists, epidemiologists, educators and administrators to protect the health of our communities.
What is public health? Public health is the science of creating healthy communities through education, research and promotion of healthy lifestyles.
The Ohio State University College of Public Health is Ohio's first and only accredited school of public health.
