The article presents an analysis of the education of doctors in the fields of public health, epidemiology and infectious diseases in 2010-2020 and concerns doctors attending the above-mentioned specializations in the Centre of Postgraduate Medical Education of Warsaw. The publication shows the growth in infectious disease and epidemiology specialists due to an increase in publicly funded training places and a decline in public health professionals. The authors emphasize how necessary it is to implement effective changes leading to an increase in the level of education of specialists. They also emphasize the need to increase the attractiveness of work in health care as a priority task of the state's public policy.
