I am curious if anyone here has transitioned from high tech into the medical field, know someone who has, or who has heard about it. If so, was it a go-back-to-school for a degree and certification thing , or a more direct transition?
For those who don't know, I'm an INFP in science/physics research, and amongst other things have worked with lasers. I haven't heard of any medical jobs such as "laser therapist" however. There is MRI tech, but usually you do x-ray tech first, then like another year or two of schooling for MRI as I understand. I have read before that they need people to calibrate/maintain/fix/whatever the magnets, so thats one way to transition physics to medical. There are medical physicists, usually dealing with cancer treatment. Advanced imaging is out there also, using lasers for NLO imaging.
Any input is welcome and greatly appreciated.
