Interesting idea for a potential career.
You will first need some kind of technical/craft training and inevitable internship or apprenticeships of sorts.
First look for some kind of arts/glass blowing classes at your nearby community college or art school. Once you've taken a couple of classes, use the professors/teachers as a networking system. Get advice from these guys (and gals) instead of trying to milk the online community who may think that ...
1. you are going through a mid-life crisis and thusly are not serious about your potential glass doctor pursuit;
2. you will be potential rivals in business so why should they help you get a leg up into the business. Something tells me this is a highly specialized business and these people don't want the competition.
For a random starter:
here's the contact information at the Corning Museum of Glass

If anything, call or email them for any advice on the local schools in your particular area of residence. I tend to trust the people of these learning institutions and know they are a far more helpful sort of folk who love to proselytize others into the realm of their personal and occupational passions.
Please take this pursuit seriously and keep us up to date on your obstacles and good fortunes in your attempt to be a glass doctor.
