Hi, I'm a sophomore in HS and am planning to pursue the medical field as a possible career path. My dad is an engineer, so I had a lot of exposure to that field growing up. Both courses are different, and I can't seem to pick which one I would instead do.
If you like both, then I recommend majoring in Bioengineering or Biomedical Engineering. You can still go to med school with both degrees OR you can still become an engineer with both degrees. By the time you're in college, you can decide which path to take. Just something to consider :)
i think you should choose what you like more no body can till you what to pick since you are a sophomore you have an amount of time to choose take your time and think
Hello, I can understand your issue. I have a similar issue with deciding between Pharmacy School or Medical school. However, in your case, when you go to college you can major in Engineering and still go to medical school. Medical schools do not care what a person's major is, as long as all of the medical school prerequisites have been completed. While you're still in high school, take AP Biology and AP Chemistry, which will both give you a good idea of courses you will take for medical school admission. And for engineering, you could take AP Physics I/II, and AP Physics C to give you a good idea of engineering.
Hi! Since you're only in 10th grade, you have a chance to explore both the medical and engineering path. You can try different clubs to figure out which one you enjoy more. You can also try classes that are suited for engineering (such as physics, robotics) and try classes that are geared more towards the medical field (such as biology, chemistry).
In addition, you can talk to your counselor about it. Maybe they have some more advice for you or have some programs that you can try out.
Maybe making a pro-con list can help you better organize your thoughts about this decision as well.
Ultimately, you should choose which one you like better...don't feel pressured to do choose one over the other because others tell you to. What others like about one field could be something that you don't like and vice versa.
choose the one you enjoy and are better at, it will help you in the long run
join clubs, intern, take classes, etc all related to these two majors and see if it helps you decide, you still have a few years to decide so you have time to do these things.
