Hi,

I like Debbie's advice (volunteer at hospital). As I work in Tech Industry, my recommendation will be thinking about which direction you want to go within Technology field...

Software related -> medical research / treatment / operation will require some application, to make it simple these applications are just like app on our mobile phone, they work / function because a group of software engineer did the programming (writing software codes). To develop a good app, the engineer need to understand their user and in this case user is the people work in hospital

Hardware related -> hospital will need professional tool to perform their work, like diagnostic equipment (X ray or CT machine), sutures, hypodermic needle... and the design/development/production of these tool rely heavily on technology .

Career combining both domain (medical x technology) is full of opportunities, so the above points are just some example. Encourage you to ask more people and you will have more idea and info.

Radiology
Part of training to become a radiologist involves studying the physics of medical imaging. Also as an interventional radiologist I am constantly introduced to new medical devices that allow for improved ability to successfully perform image guided procedures.
