I want to become a doctor. That is one of the usual answers when you ask a child what he would like to become when he grows up. The reason? To serve others. As someone grows older, he gets to realize that not everyone can be a doctor. However, it does not mean that he should lose hope in serving others or work in a hospital. There are actually lots of medical courses to choose from. He might want to check out ultrasound schools, nursing schools, physical therapy schools and the like.
If he would like to work hand in hand with a doctor, say and obstetrician perhaps, then there are many sonography schools that he can choose from. Why a sonography school? Because he can be an ultrasound technician! I had been into an ultrasound procedure and an ultrasound technician had been most helpful. I heard that they are well compensated too.
