What are some interesting medical/health careers or occupations?

I need to research on a career in the medical/health field for a project in my high school. I want to find some interesting specific jobs in general. If there are great websites to look at, could you give some? If you know any interesting medical/health jobs, could you tell me? (Please don't give me answers like doctor or answers that are broad..please be specific. Thanks!)
