Training in epidemiology at Berkeley provides a sound basis for careers in several areas. Persons with a prior doctoral degree who complete the MPH degree and those who complete the PhD degree are in demand for teaching and research careers in schools of public health, medical schools and other academic institutions. There also are diverse opportunities for careers in international, federal, state, and local health agencies. The latter positions usually focus on the use of epidemiological approaches and knowledge to carry out research or program evaluation directed at control of infectious or noninfectious diseases. Epidemiologists are also increasingly in demand in major health care provider organizations. Graduates who terminate at the MS or MPH degree find positions in many of the same agencies, working in multidisciplinary groups and applying their epidemiological and statistical training to studies of various health problems.
