4. Phlebotomist

medicine careersWhen doctors are looking to diagnose or monitor an issue, they often send patients to phlebotomists to have their blood drawn. Phlebotomists also work with blood donors. They are responsible for drawing blood, labeling samples, and having them screened — so this is not one of the best medicine careers for the squeamish!

After studying at schools like the Community College of Allegheny County, Edmonds Community College, or Lanier Technical College, companies such as the American Red CrossCarolinas HealthCare System, and Quest Diagnostics will be looking to hire you. Phlebotomists can expect to earn a median salary of $31,630.
