What are some good medical/human body related careers to go into?
Ever since I was about 9-10 years old (Im 17 now) I have loved science, especially the human body. However I had never thought about going into a medical field as a career. Now I am giving it some serious thought but there are so many catagories to choose from and even more choices in those catagories. I would like to know what some of the non-obvious careers could be (nothing obvious like 'doctor' or 'nurse' but types of nurses/doctors would be ok such as neonatal nurse etc.). Also, are there other careers that maybe aren't totally 'medical' related but I could still learn about the human body and stuff and use that knowledge in a different field? I know this is a long question and I know Im probably going to get some sarcastic answers to it but oh well! Thanks!

I would suggest chriopractic or even massage. It's a part of the humab body that is frequently overlooked. I see my chiropractor and massage therapist more than my regular doctor. Plus, with massage, there are opportunities to work some pretty neat places.

Chiropractitioner. They are concerned with the human frame, natural vitamins and diet. "The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest her or his patients in the care of the human frame, in a proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease." Thomas A. Edison

Along the lines of other careers that aren't exactly "medical," I'd like to give you the perspective from someone who loves science, because it seems like you might have a scientific curiosity about how the body works. To me, jobs like a nurse or even a doctor becomes a matter of dealing with people, and doing... More
