Hello, I am a student physician currently and also have a Masters degree in science. I have done a little of everything from research to now medicine. Undergraduate years are extremely valuable to test out what you want to do. Some schools like medical or physician assistant schools have programs where they may allow you to see what their school is like. I did this and as a junior was allowed to go to a medical school for a day to see what it was like. I would also just say try to shadow careers, although COVID might make that hard now. I volunteered in an ER for a year to see if I liked it. There are many good fields to look into with varying competitiveness. It boils down to how many years you want to spend, your desired salary and work life balance. Reach out to any professionals to see how they like their career. They will most likely tell you exactly how they feel. I hope this helps, I have done plenty of research into medical careers and I also know many people personally from different careers so I can help you connect to them.

Hello I can give you some helpful advice that will help you to choose your career path and your choice of study. However ask yourself why you are choosing the medical field. What type of work and what area of the medical field interest you the most. Than you have to do your own research to see if the medical field is the right choice for you. Make a list of what you love to do most than see if you can make a career out of what you love doing. For instance I love helping people my choice of study is psychology. Now here are a list of a few career paths in the medical field. Dentist are becoming very popular, Nurse practitioners,Clinical Social Worker,Clinical Laboratory Technician,Diagnostic Medical Sonographer,Occupational Therapist,Dietitian and Nutritionist,Pharmacist.
