how to be an epidemiologist?

Postby august » Fri Jan 27, 2012 3:12 pm

I would really like to become an epidemiologist but would like to know the necessary steps in becoming one. I was wondering if you can only go to an accredited school under the association of public health or can you just complete your BS in an accredited online university of public health. I don't want to take a route where I complete my degree at a school where I won't even be qualified to become an epidemiologist based off of the school I went to. What are the exact steps I should take to go towards becoming an epidemiologist?
