Medical technology as a major/career?

Hi,
I'm considering the possibilty of switching my major in going into my uni's 3+1 medical technology program (3 years of academia plus a full year of clinical placement). I'm intrigued by the direct focus, the good job market, science, and flexible hours, but a tad worried about health risks (pathogen exposure and the whatnot) and repetitiveness of work. Any insights on the job outlook, major, pay, personal experience, or anything else that might had in my decision would be very much welcome and appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
