The key is to do well in the courses that relate most directly to medical school. The advice on not getting anything less than a B is good. Just survive the AA program and try and do well on remaining courses. I would recommend an AA degree in allied health to "get your foot in the door" for the field.
* MRI Tech
* X-Ray Tech
* Dental Hygieist
* Medical Assistant
* Pharmacy Tech
* Cardiac Ultrasound
* Surgical Technologist
I have taken courses in medical school as a graduate student. I took the MCAT, PCAT, and GRE. I have two master's degrees and do a lot of research with medical students. As a biomedical engineer, I have been exposed to pre-med courses and know the strategy.
The best thing to do is get a 4 year degree after your AA and try to get into a bachelor's degree in a "pre-med" major like biochemistry, pre-professional studies, biology, etc. These are the core courses for medical school that are usually considered "optional." But if you do well in them the admissions committee will notice. Also try and get a real high MCAT score (top 5? An "A" in both semesters of biochemistry should easily make up for poor math grades years earlier (assuming you eventually get your AA and earn the bachelor's).
* biochemistry I & II with lab
* anatomy labs (I & II)
* physiology (I & II)
* molecular biology
Volunteering and multi-lingualism can also help. With the work experience from an AA in Allied Health and a bachelor's in a strong pre-med major with advanced courses, then you should be in good position for MD admission if you get a very high MCAT score and volunteer or have years of clinical experience from the AA.
There are also strong alternatives:
* physician's assistant (master's)
* nurse practitioner (master's)
* pharmacist (PharmD)
* medical laboratory technician (bachelor's or master's)
* public health
* FDA regulatory affairs specialist (master's or phd)
A typical state university with a university medical center will have options like the one below.
It sounds like your aptitude is not in math, but that is ok. Most doctors I know do not enjoy math. Many prefer the life sciences, and if you don't mind studying many hours to get As in biochemistry and score double-digits for each section of the MCAT, then medical school is still a possibility. Many students also get master's degrees before applying. Some even have a PhD. A master's of public health or a master's in genetics could also help.
Just know that anatomy and biochemistry require huge amounts of memorization and many hundreds of pages of reading per final exam. Study the Netters Anatomy book and Guyton's physiology book for a day and see if you can envision years with books like that.
As for math, you don't really need to be an expert. But know that software is becoming a big part of clinical practice. Epic is being installed on many university medical schools in the near future. Epic is an ipod friendly tool for patient data that will replace the paper charts.
