What else can I do inside the medical field?
Now I'm taking a certificate for limited X-Ray tech, but I want something better than that because a limited X-ray tech is very useless. I want to know what other careers are involved in the medical field. I was thinking after the x-ray certification to take an A.S Degree/Certification for Nuclear Medicine Technician.
