Structure of epidemiology and its subfields. Since the formation of the field of epidemiology, a number of subfields have emerged to specialize into particular subject matters, including detailed analyses of exposure factors (depicted on the left) and detailed analyses of health outcomes or diseases (depicted on the right).
