Public Health is a wide and varied field of medicine. Professionals working in the public health field focus their attention on preventing illness and disease. Work is done in federal, state and local health departments, non-governmental organizations and non-profit groups, health centers and research institutions and in worksite wellness programs. Pay ranges from the low 30’s to over $100,000 depending on experience and specialty.
Make up to $70,000 right out of school. If you are interested in helping people, making a very comfortable living and solving interesting problems on a daily basis, the degree in Occupational Health and Safety could be the choice for you.
BYU-Idaho has decided to discontinue the medical assistant program and the Health Education minor (school teacher). Click here for more information.
