    I was originally going to do medicine at uni but have recently changed my mind and have a few months to decide what course(s) to apply for after wanting to be a doctor ever since i was little! I find biology interesting, but I think would prefer human biology or physiology as plants and etc that are taught in biology courses i don't find too interesting. Am I restricting my career path by taking human biology instead of biology? I intend to finish a human biology/ biology degree then take a post grad course that is more specified to my interest/ career (with the anticipation I have decided by then!) Basically will not taking biology restrict what post grad courses i can do or career i wish to pursue? Also are accelerated courses (such as physiotherapy) competitive? Sorry this is so long but in a nutshell im hoping to take an accelerated course that specialises in some health care profession after I've graduated, so will taking human biology instead of biology make a difference?
    Thanks!!

    Re: healthcare courses, yes they are competitive and you need work experience so if you are considering them make sure you get the experience required. Otherwise pick a course that interests you. Most undergrad courses are fairly general so you won't be restricting yourself. Have a look at some postgrad courses to get an idea of what their entry requirements are.
