Well OP, I'll just focus on the one area I can be helpful with and hope I misunderstand you a bit. It almost sounds like your asking how to become a professional in a highly educated field....without all that pesky education stuff. I'll assume you mean, without over a decade of time and well over 6 figures in loan debt.
If it's the first? I can't help ya much. I wouldn't be in college myself and up all hours as if I'm married to this computer more than a beautiful woman across the house if it wasn't the only way ..and I'm not even touching medicine as a profession. That's akin to the Mt Everest of degrees in terms of money and time. (One of them, anyway)
However, if it's money you seek to avoid and simply knowledge you want to gain? That I CAN help with.
A new world of free online learning opportunity
Take the world's best courses, online, for free.
The first link is called Alison and it's a generally technical and practical based service of University courses in a wide variety of things. Some medicine related and other areas peripheral to it.
The second one is called Coursera. It hosts over 300 courses from 60+ Universities around the world. Big names like Stanford, MIT, Duke, Cal-Tech and Harvard are among them for most seasons.
They are both structured and unstructured, depending on which course you're looking for. They each have low level newbie stuff or things a High School level would find very useful. Coursera in particular has very high level stuff as well. I got a part of a series in Cybernetics and Human/Robotic interface (as in..direct brain control of robotic limbs, and what's on the horizon) in a college studies class on memory and learning. It came from there and out of a Brain research center at a major University overseas.
They're also both free for their offerings. VERY expensive courses, in some cases, if you went to the physical schools. Free if you just want to learn it and get a Certificate saying you passed the course, study material and testing at the end.
I hope that helps a bit! Happy hunting!edit on 13-5-2013 by Wrabbit2000 because: (no reason given)
