​​Public Health Medical Officer

The Public Health Medical Officer classifications are medical professionals (MDs) who oversee, or act as technical advisors on, a major phase of a public health program.  This typically will involve coordination with other Departments, local health officers, private physicians, hospitals, or other health agencies.  Typical focus is in the planning, development, and operation of a major disease-control program.  The “Epidemiology” parenthetical classification focuses on epidemiologic investigations and studies of specific diseases and related health policy.
