Consider how long you want to go to school.
MD's have the longest route with 4 years of college, 4 years of medical school and 3-6 years of residency.
PA's go to 2 years of PA school after college.
Registered nurses have 4 years of college.
EMT, paramedics, lab techs, x ray techs and scrub techs have fewer years of education after high school.
Consider shadowing different professions to choose what is right for you.

Since you like the math and bio aspects, I would suggest maybe something in the Biomedicine field. It would combine the bio aspects as well as math in the ratios and who know, you could even event the next big medicinal cure with a big experiment in that field.

If you enjoy being social and also athletic activites, physical therapy may be a great field for you! PT school includes a lot of scientific and medical information, and the actual job involves working one on one with people.
