It could be a profession as a physician, a surgeon, a nurse, a laboratory technician, a radiologist, a professional medical representative, a pharmacist, a physiotherapist, a person who mans the reception counter of hospitals, the ward boy, or even the ambulance driver. In short, it is any career that is connected to keeping people healthy and fit so that they can lead a normal life.

The type of medical career that would suit a person would naturally depend on his acumen in that specific field. To become a doctor, one has to study medicine and surgery and may further his career by specializing in the specific field of his choice like, Heart, Eye, Orthopedics, E.N.T., Medicine and Plastic surgery, to name a few. The same is true for other medical related career, the only difference being their subject.
