    My guess would be medical doctor.

    I'm assuming you're asking about specializations in medicine. Your technical background would make you an ideal candidate for radiation oncology, nuclear medicine, and radiology (especially if you've done any image processing).

    Research in / development of biomedical devices? That's only if you have interest in doing so, however. I did have a few friends who did an undergrad in engineering (for interest / the challenge), but went to med school to be doctors.
