As mentioned above, community colleges are the ones that usually grant 2-year degrees. However, with a 2-year degree, you can be a paramedic! These medical professionals are the ones who perform pre-hospital emergency care such as resuscitation, managing broken or amputated limbs, over-dose management, and patient transport from one facility to another.
You might also consider Certified Medical Assistant or Licence Practical Nurse. These professionals take vital signs, give some injections, help chart, and often run the clinics they are employed in.
Any of these would be a good career or a good stepping stone if you want to pursue further goals in medicine! Most of the schools for these programs are pretty standard. When researching these programs, look for the ones that have a high passing rate for licensing and price of attendance (not just tuition but cost of living as well).
