Advice for physics and med school

  1. Aug 4, 2011 #1
    I'm currently a math major going into second year, but I think I'm going to switch majors to physics because it's pretty goddamn awesome. Anyway, I was also thinking about taking more chem and bio in order to take the MCAT and eventually go into med school, but I have some questions.
    First and foremost: What are some good jobs in physics? This means either jobs that actually put a lot of the material learnt to good use or make a decent amount of money requiring a physics degree.
    Secondly: I understand it's very difficult to get into med school; what are some of the things they look for besides marks?
    And thirdly: How does the distinction in fields work in med school (ex. paediatrician vs. surgeon)? Like if (hypothetically) I were to be accepted, how would I choose where I wanted to go and what would I do to prepare for this?

    Thanks in advance,
