Hi teachers,

If I would like to indicate in my work title that my area of specilization in my field of medical public health, would using the work “specialty” like this be correct?:


Medical Public Health specialist

Cardiovascular Health Specialty


Feel free to also provide better suggestions.

Thanks for your help in advance!

In the medical field, a specialist usually means a doctor, with specialized knowledge, eg a cardiologist.

What do other people with similar knowledge and skills to yours call themselves?

If you are not self-employed, it is usually your boss who decides your job title.

Thanks for your response teacher.


The field I am in is a clinical field, although not an doctor with an MD, many fellow doctors with phds do use the term “specialist or specialty”, since they are specialized in a specific area. So it is up to us how to use it. What do you suggest? And is it grammatically correct to use “specialty” as indicated in the above example?

My fellow colleagues who are doctors with phds, not MDs, do use the term specialist or specialty since they are specialized in specific area related to the medical field. So it is up to us how to use it. What do you suggest? Also, is the use of ‘specialty’ in the above example correct?

speciality and specialty are the same thing. The word specialist refers to a person.

I don't know what to suggest to you. Does no-one else do the same thing as you?

Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.

It depends on your degree. Look at www.LinkedIn.com

At Indeed.com, they have Public Health Specialists jobs posted that require a master's degree in public health. Also, there are jobs listed for Public Health Nurse.

I understand. So I just would like to know if it is correct to say, in terms of meaning/grammer:


“Cardiovascular health specialty”

If you are referring to yourself, I suggest

Cardiovascular Health Specialist

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Clive

If you are referring to yourself, I suggest

Cardiovascular Health Specialist

Clive

Thanks!


However, we generally indicate the general field, “Public Health Specialist”, followed by the area of specialty. This is why I am asking if it is correct to use “specialty” in the following subjob title (Cardiovascular Health Specialty) because using ‘Specialist’ twice seems redundant.


Using “Specialty” seems redundant too but I have seems fellow colleagues do it. Is there another way or term?
