Random B: What are some good career options for someone interested in the medical field?
I am interested in changing careers from a school counselor to something in the medical field. I enjoy the helping aspect of the field as well as am interested in its investigative nature and of course pay. However, before I go adding anymore debt to my already ridiculous student loans I need to figure out exactly what career path I should follow. I know it seems sensible to go the psychiatrist route with my background but I’m not to into it anymore. Does anyone have any other suggestions as to what some possible careers may be. Anything you offer will be a great help thanks!

I have long desired to be a nutritionist. I think that would be a fabulous way to go.
Job shadowing. If you are unsure which way to turn in this troubled economy I would take a brief inexpensive course as a CNA. That career is a stepping stone to so many other positions in the medical field and you will always have something to fall back on. You can also work part time and vacations anywhere and most facilities will work around your schedule.
As for careers the job shadowing is the best option for you. Perhaps volunteer at a hospital and do different jobs to see what interests you. The volunteer coordinators have excellent connections through the hospitals and can hook you up.
in the mean time get your basic course work done and something will just come to you.
Remember there is never a wrong choice when it comes to education. Take all you can get.
