Hi there, I am bit confused. Are aspiring to be a physician or scientist or technology professional. These are three different fields with different mathematical skills needed. I am from Biomedical field which deals with design and development medical devices and there is group which manages the medical equipments. I would say all three will need high school level 10th grade or above math. The design jobs need under grad level advanced maths such differential calculus etc.

Ananth recommends the following next steps:

Be clear what you wanted to do first
Most of the programs will prerequisite . Make sure it synch with your natural inclination

Yes, many math courses could apply to many different healthcare programs. In order to save time and money, you would have to consult each profession's individual program requirements. Program requirements are easily found on school websites and then you could compare requirements to other programs. With some planning ahead, you could take math courses that fulfill multiple program requirements and then you would have multiple options if you have many different interests at this point.
