There's certainly a lot of things to do as a Corpsman in the Navy. Diving medicine and Fleet Marine are some unique opportunities available to them. The Doc on my boat was an Independent Duty Corpsman (takes a while to get there), and he had received a lot of extra training. And then there's always the Corpsman at the branch clinics and hospitals who act as orderlies/nurses. I did have a HM3 (E-4) staple my head once and he did a great job; he had just come back from the sand box so I trusted him.
Lots of opportunities... don't forget that when/if you join, the Navy will pretend you don't have any skills. If you're looking for a change of scenery do it, if you're looking for more skills right now, YMMV. Good luck.
