Hello Tori,
I am not sure if you are in high school or college but you may want to start with possibly shadowing or interning in an OBGYN office or similar medical setting. You may have to begin with your school counselor, advisor or administrator to help you get started. You can also speak to a teacher/instructor (high school) or career center advisor (college) about career planning platforms such as "Career Cruising", Naviance or SIGI career assessments to give you a "day in the life" glance of many career fields. Hope this helps....Best wishes :)
