Many options: I would consider nurse practitioner, physician's assistant, or even heading to medical school and pursuing dermatology. Don't sell your self short but focus on the right path with the balance you are looking for. Each job has different responsibilities and different training paths but any way you go, caring for patients is extremely rewarding. I highly recommend any job in this area.
