I am currently taking Math HL, Chem HL, and Physics HL because I was going to become an engineer, but now I’m not too sure. I love helping people and knowing what to do when it comes down to a medical emergency. On the other hand, I do wish to do something in designing. What should I do?

Perhaps you could look at prosthetics since it somewhat has both of those perspectives

I am in a similar situation as well, I know that some schools (in the USA) are now adopting a biomedical engineering degree instead of premed courses, such as at Colombia University. Perhaps this is something that you would be interested in because it gives you exposure to both the medical field and engineering. And it allows for you to make a decision after gaining experience in both fields

Look into biomedical engineering, because you can go into the medical field, or be an engineer.
