Dentist or Pharmacy or Optometry or OTHER!

A photo of StressOfLife StressOfLife
So i want to go into something in the health area, such as dentistry, pharmacy, or optometry, but i also want to know of other options. Each of those careers has specialized schools made for students to learn, that is kind of what i am looking for. Can anyone list any other careers that also DOES NOT require medical school but maybe another specialized school for a career in something health related. Thank You.

All registered dietitians are required to complete a year-long internship. Some schools offer it as part of the undergraduate program (ie. UBC, McGill), which increases the length of the program (ie. 5 years instead of 4) but the majority are post-grad/after-degree programs, either as a stand-alone internship, or as part of a Masters degree.
