The United States will be able to grapple with health and economic issues more clearly and directly if it can benefit from the highest quality professional efforts to uncover, assemble, and synthesize relevant information and to develop the best measures to deal with the problems. Thus a high level of professional performance in public health is a pressing social necessity. It is crucial that educational programs for this purpose be of the highest possible quality. It is hoped that this report will render two services: (1) help those who are concerned with the conduct and support of higher education to clarify the mission they might wish to fulfill in public health, and (2) help the leaders of public health agencies compare the different types of educational programs to see which best serve their employment needs.
