Did you have a specific Health Care career in mind? There are a lot. These are just the ones I can think of and find in a few minutes.

I became a Dental Assistant. I liked to talk to people and help them with their dental problems and I even helped teach people more about their teeth or anything else we may have discussed. With any health care you get a sense of accomplishment. With any career you have to look at the pros and cons of the specific career you are looking into. and even consider looking into finding someone with that job and do a job shadow for a day or two to get a feel of how things would go. You might be surprised on specific things that you may like or know that you won't be able to tolerate.

Regardless of which specific career path you take, learning the medical terminology, anatomy, and physiology will be beneficial. You can learn these things even before you decide which specific career you decide. Library keeps good books on the subject and this website has some medical termonology (http://quizlet.com/11324001/medical-terminology-list-1-flash-cards/)
