Epidemiologist

Epidemiologists work in the field of public health and specialize in disease analysis and control. Unlike general practitioners, these doctors spend most of the time in labs, not with patients. They identify and monitor diseases from the well-known to the strange for new strains. They catalog symptoms and characteristics so they can be noted and treated when they appear in patients. There’s a great deal of forensic work for these types of doctors.
