Education and Training Requirements

High School

English and speech courses will help you to build your communication skills, which you will use to write educational materials and reports, give health education presentations, and interact one-on-one with clients and coworkers. Many people from medically underserved populations do not speak English fluently. Taking a foreign language—such as Spanish—will help you to reach these groups and improve health outcomes. Take psychology and sociology classes to obtain a better understanding of human behavior. Other useful classes include statistics, computer science, mathematics, marketing, advertising, health, anatomy and physiology, and social studies.
