Students pursuing a Health and Medicine degree can design a curriculum with the concentration in Public Health. Public Health is the science and social skill of preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting health through organized efforts and informed choices. Public health facilities use well disclosed information to education a society, an organization, public and private institutions as well as communities and individuals.

Public Health professionals analyze threats to the common public by evaluating habits and precautions communities perform. The prevention, treatment and irradiation of illnesses as well as the education of common good health habits for a specific ‘population’, whether it be a handful of patients or an entire city, is the primary goal of a public health division. The World Health Organization defines health as: ""a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity"". A higher level of education in a Public health will enable students to understand the foundations of epidemiology, biostatistics and health services, environmental health, community health, behavioral health, health economics, public policy, insurance medicine and occupational health.

Students and graduates of a Health and Medicine degree will use public health practices when developing plans and methods for prevention and management of diseases, injuries and other health conditions through promotion of healthy behaviors, communities and environments. The impact of preventable measures for most diseases are simple, non-medical behaviors such as hand washing with soap and in other cases, proper and well informed control of a disease can be vital when preventing further contamination. Public health programs contribute to the health of populations and increases in life expectancy.

Graduates of an advanced education program in Public Health are willing and able to use communication, education and modern research methods to improve the health and quality of life. Successful professionals will enter the competitive job market with the knowledge and skills needed to work closely with physicians specializing in areas of community medicine and social welfare.
