I would advise against it as a career change.

I don't mean to discourage you, but it is the truth. Also internships are very competitive and many fail to get accepted. Unless your prior education is in science, the coursework itself can be very challenging, especially anatomy, microbiology, organic chemistry and biochemistry. You will be looking at 5 years of tuition with no pay. [ Reply | More ]
