A History of education in public health: health that mocks the doctors' rules
This is the first book to examine and compare the history and contemporary problems of education for public health in Britain and the United States. In Britain, education for public health has been directed solely toward the medical profession; in the United States, independent schools of public health are open to physicians, engineers, nurses, lawyers, administrators and other professional groups. Despite their differences, these two systems continue to serve as models for public health schools and training programs throughout the world. This unique study provides a lucid view of the political, economic, and social forces which shape public health patterns. It will provoke and inform policy decisions about the future directions of education in all countries interested in building stronger and more effective public health systems.
