Work Environment

Depending on where epidemiologists work, part of their day might be spent in the office and part in the community. Most spend part of their time working in teams and part on their own. They may monitor the site of a disease, take samples, collect data, and check out any outbreaks among community residents. Back in the office, they might download their data, conduct research, analyze samples, and write reports.
