Preventative Medicine are physicians who specialize in preventing diseases and injuries rather than curing or treating their symptoms. Preventive medicine strategies are typically described as taking place at the primary, secondary, tertiary and quaternary prevention levels. In the United States, preventive medicine is one of the 24 medical specialties recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). Within the specialty of preventative there are three areas of specialization: - General preventive medicine and public health - Aerospace medicine - Occupational medicine In order to become board-certified in one of the preventive medicine areas of specialization, a licensed U.S. physician (M.D. or D.O.) must successfully complete a preventive medicine medical residency program following a one-year internship. Following that, the physician must complete a year of practice in that special area and pass the preventive medicine board examination. The residency program is at least two years in length and includes completion of a master's degree in public health (MPH) or equivalent.
