TN Visa as an Epidemiologist

What is an Epidemiologist for TN visa purposes?

In general, Epidemiologists study the population’s health events, characteristics, and determinant patterns, and conduct public health research to identify risk factors of diseases and to aid in developing preventive medicine. Epidemiologists collect and analyze statistical data, interpret, and disseminate the results of their study.  Most Epidemiologists work on outbreak investigation, surveillance of diseases, as well as screening, bio-monitoring, and comparison of the effects of administered treatments such as in clinical trials. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) provides a detailed breakdown of the Epidemiologist profession through O*NET Online.
