Being patient and a good listener are great skills and also most definitely required in the medical field.
In my opinion, just about every position in the medical field will allow you to use those skills. It will really depend on what you are most passionate about because it's not just a job, it is your career.
Do you work well with others? Are you compassionate? Do you want to serve others? Do you enjoy social interaction? Do you prefer to work alone? Do you see yourself in a hospital setting? Can you see yourself working in a high paced clinical setting or in a laboratory? Are you interested in the outpatient services versus the inpatient services? Allied Health jobs? Do you want to be a nurse or a doctor?
This is a great question and before you can fully answer that question, you have to look up different careers in the medical field.
