Mary-Kate’s Answer

Try to find an area of the field you are interested in. Once you narrow it down, try to shadow someone in that career. Ask your neighbors, family friends or even your own doctors, nurses, techs, etc. if you can shadow them (even if just for a day). It’s best to see what “a day in the life” is like for any career you’re interested in.

Shavon’s Answer

First, I would suggest you decide what draws you to the medical field. Is it the work itself or the salary. This is important because depending on the answer you come to that will help narrow down your choices. Then decide do you want to work directly with patients, filing, or be a medical technician. Research what fields are prominent where you live, and think about if you would be willing to relocate if necessary. After thinking on these aspects consider if you would prefer a degree or a certificate. Research what is needed for the field of your choice, and then decide which school you would like to attend.

Below is the statistics for the medical field as it stand on the bureau of labor website.

I do hope that helps.

Shavon recommends the following next steps:

Explore why you want to work in the medical field.
Decide what aspect of the medical field are you willing to work with?
Research where that sector of the medical is in your area
