I would like to get a deeper understanding of which medical professions don't require rigorous math (such as calculus) and their yearly salary. I am saying so as I am only average in the subject and do not wish to encounter it much in the medical field.

By medical professions, do you mean Dr? Of Allied Healthcare Professions?
A medical degree and working as a Dr does not require rigorous maths and they are happy to accept people who managed a 6 at GCSE as their highest qualification, generally.
There is more info about medical specialties here

What do you mean by "medical professions"? Generally speaking the medical profession refers to doctors; being a doctor does not require advanced maths knowledge or use of calculus.

If your definition is much broader than medical doctors then the only thing I can think of is perhaps medical engineering which would involve a reasonable amount of maths, but I would see that as being part of the engineering field rather than the medical profession.

Oh I meant like anything ranging from a general practitioner to an anesthiologist. I just want to look at some options for a career.

So being a doctor then. Yeah, you won't need to use calculus or advanced maths while working in any medical specialty.

I don't think IB equates to GCSEs?
