I depends on what your strengths are as well as your particular interests. Do you like to be on the "front lines" so to speak, with patients? Do you like like diagnostics aspect of medical sciences? Ask yourself what it is that specifically intrigues you, what can you picture yourself becoming when you close your eyes and let yourself imagine your future? Are you a strong and disciplined individual? Im not saying any of this to discourage you only to inspire you! The sciences are h-a-r-d but they are the most rewarding of studies that I've ever ventured to know. The medical field opens up a whole new world for you. It offers you the basic understanding of what it is to be human and then allows you to take all that wonderful knowledge and make your personal life more meaningful and valuable. What is your schedule like? Are you younger or older? One of the best things you can try before you make a commitment is to volunteer at a local hospital. They have some amazing programs and I can say first-hand that when I worked in the inpatient pharmacy, our volunteers made the difference each day we were lucky to get them! Give that a try! You could volunteer in pharmacy, with the patients, the nurses, the gift shop, anything really just to get a feel for how the world works inside the field . Its also a great way for you to network and be mentored by individuals like yourself who can help guide you. Wish you all the luck in the world and am here for further "brain picking" :)
