Even though celebrities are already treading their own career paths, they're still free to dream of pursuing other professions just like us. In case you're curious, here are five local stars who have once aspired to work in the medical field: 

Jodi Sta. Maria

The veteran actress is currently on her way to finishing a degree in Psychology and hopes to enter medical school if given the chance. If she does end up going to med school, Jodi once said she would like to specialize in oncology, the branch of medicine that deals with cancer.

Maris Racal

Singer and actress Maris Racal once dreamed of pursuing a career in the medical field.
