It has different majors which I believe you can change if you want for exple you can shift from being a health care administrator to either health and occupational health safety officer and many other ,for sure I believe it's possible and mark you there are new upcoming medical careers coming up every day to basically try to improve health system that we all strive for in realization of global health
One option I highly recommend for anyone wanting to go into healthcare is get certified as a CNA, a medical scribe, a CMA, or a healthcare tech position (Radiology, ultrasound), etc.
Usually these certification programs that take less than a few months to get, and once your certified- you gain real world exposure to the different medical professions. On top of that, a lot of medical programs (nursing, medical school, PA school) require insane amounts of shadowing hours.
Do your research as you shadow, and you'll navigate a fantastic career!
In healthcare, which offers diverse opportunities, consider these key points:
1. Explore Broadly: Healthcare has many facets. Early in your studies, try various courses to see what truly interests you.
2. Gain Real-World Experience: Internships or volunteering in healthcare settings can offer invaluable insights and help you make informed decisions.
3. Reflect on Your Strengths: Think about what draws you to healthcare. Is it patient care, research, or perhaps the public health aspect? Your interests and strengths are important guides.
4. Continue to Seek Guidance: Conversations with professionals already in the field can provide realistic perspectives and valuable advice.
5. Be Open to Change: Changing your mind or career path is part of the journey. Embrace it as a natural step in finding what’s right for you.
6. Consider the Commitment: Understand the demands, especially for fields like medicine, including time and financial aspects.
Choosing a career is about aligning with your values and what you wish to contribute to the world. It's okay to start in one direction and find your true calling elsewhere. There is a great resource - " What Color Is Your Parachute? 2022: Your Guide to a Lifetime of Meaningful Work and Career Success". by Richard N. Boles. This book has been around for many years and still one of the best resources out there. It has been updated in 2022 and still relevant today. There are a number of workbooks and related materials available that leverage the content and help you explore what you want to do.
Can you change jobs? Of course.
Would that mean you might need a new degree? Maybe.
If you earned a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry for example, and then maybe got your Masters in Pharmacology, or maybe attended an Registered Nurse (RN) school, and got certified, and then went to work as a Pharmacist or Nurse, did the job for a few years, and decided you hated it, that BS in Chemistry would allow you to change to pretty much any science related field that touches on Chemistry (including teaching at the K-12 level).
However, if you earn a BS in Music or Communications, and decide you then wan to be a Doctor, yeah, you will have to go back to university and pick up an undergrad degree in a pre-med field (usually Chem or Bio), then go to med school. If you majored in Math, and went into medicine (maybe as a researcher for example), that Math major would transfer to a LOT of jobs. If you majored in Computer Science, and somehow got a job in medicine (again, I am thinking researcher), that major would also transfer to a lot of jobs in the tech industry. Etc.
So it really depends on what you might want to pivot to post degree. Some degrees would let you pivot much more easily than others. But the answer to your question is: Majors do not exist outside of university, and yes, some jobs would require a different degree with a different major, if you want to change to that job if you decided medicine is not for you.
I STRONGLY recommend interning and trying out a field before completing a major in that field in university for that very reason.
