There's a real global need for public health doctors, also known as epidemiologists. They use statistical, lab, and traditional doctoring skills to figure out where epidemics (think SARS, flu, malaria, etc) come from, how they spread, and how to slow them down. In a way, they're the homicide detectives and CSI people of the human-health field.


This work might be a great way to use your gifts and interests.


Thank you for the advice. Krystal N.

Hi Charlotte.


Let me just start off my saying that just because you are not good at it now does not mean that you can't get good at it in the future. If you are motivated to learning the subject then go for it! Now, I personally hated chemistry, except for the labs, so I completely understand if you want to avoid the subject as much as possible. That's just fine.


All medical healthcare fields involve learning some O-Chem. But, the one's that I am familiar with that don't involve as much are Nursing, Sonography, Anesthesiology, and Physical Therapy.


Thank you for the advice . I'm considering about nurse anesthesist too . Krystal N.

If you are good at anatomy and physiology a lot of careers in the medical field are good for you! Some become science teachers, doctors, physician assistants, nurses and athletic trainers. I am an athletic trainer and excelled in anatomy and physiology. It is the foundation for any career in the medical field and helps saves lives everyday! being good at math is important because it goes hand and hand with sciences.


thank you for the advice. I'm thinking between nurse vs pa or doctor. Krystal N.

Consider being a Biomedical Technician or Engineer. Not all biomedical equipment involves an in depth understanding of organic chemistry. For example: Ultra-sound equipment, X-ray machines, CAT scanners, and MRIs.

A technician is not an engineer. You would need specialized schooling (an Associate Degree). However, there are even some Biomedical Technicians with Engineering degrees. There aren't enough Biomedical Technicians to maintain, repair, update and modify important diagnostic equipment in all the hospitals and treatment facilities.

Narasinha’s Answer

As people have advised it is important to know what your likes are and what you would like to do. It also not bad to actually try a few things before you decide which path to pursue. If you are looking for jobs there are potentially many pharmaceutical and medical device companies that could be looked into. You can try startups or medium or big sized companies depending on your preference. As suggested, you have many opportunities possible.

Congrats for being good in so many subjects! That gives you many options. So think about all the other things about you. What do you prefer, equipment or people? Children or adults? Inside body parts or outsides? Specializations or knowledge of a little bit of everythig? Think about all these things and then go online and do some research on different careers that pop up and peak your interest. Also look at the time factor for how long will it take you to complete the degrees in light of how long you are interested in going to school for. All the best!


Thank you so much for the advice . Krystal N.
