Royal College Fellowship in Public Health and Preventive Medicine
The public health and preventive medicine physician deals with populations or groups rather than with individuals. In conjunction with other health professionals and members of the community, the public health and preventive medicine physician measures the health needs of the community and develops methods of improving levels of health.
