Epidemiologists in the usa an assessment of the current supply and the anticipated need

, : Epidemiologists in the usa an assessment of the current supply and the anticipated need. American Journal of Preventive Medicine 4(4): 231-238

We provide 1985 estimates of work force of epidemiologists in the United States, the number of graduates from training programs in epidemiology, and a projection of the future need for these health professionals. Our methods included a search of mailing lists from professional organizations, mail contact with graduate training programs, telephone interviews with experts, and a review of job announcements in professional journals. The study indicates that the current work force of epidemiologists in the United States is estimated to include 4,600 persons, more than half of whom are physicians; most epidemiologists are located in either a state with a major federal public health agency or one with a large population; and programs in epidemiology graduate an average of 475 persons with one or two years of master's level education and approximately 80 with doctoral-level education each year. After considering the factors that influence the supply of epidemiologists, we project a substatial need for more epidemiologists in the future than current sources will provide.
