This field involves finding solutions to health-related problems. Due to research and new developments, the field of medicine has become more complex and challenging. An initial study base will prepare you for a vast array of specialisations. The expansion of the medical field has resulted in careers for people with different interests, personality profiles and needs. Career opportunities vary from those which require close involvement with people (paediatrics, internists) to those which require research in laboratories (virology, genetics), to those requiring the use of high-tech equipment (radiology, pathology).
