In the US, you need to take Chem, biochem, organic chem, bio, physics and usually calculus in undergrad to be able to apply to med school. I suspect Carlisle would want updates on some of that stuff, but would ultimately really need updates on new knowledge in physiology and pathology which you would learn about much more in depth in the first couple years of med school.malaz wrote:maybe the united states medical school system is different than Canada's. but, Doesn't Edward have to first complete four years of science which include basically a whole range of aspects of science (chemistry, bio, microbio..). Is this what Carlisle needs to be updated on? or is it something different...like, family physician updates?
There are. I don't know much about those though. They might assume a lot of knowledge already and/or not go super in-depth? And assuming Edward was interested in learning about it, it's a great way to gain new knowledge in one fell swoop rather than trying to participate in a handful of classes here and there.malaz wrote:Also, why exactly does edward needs to update Carlisle. Aren't there programs specially made to update doctors and stuff?
If by the first four years you mean the first four years of undergrad, I personally didn't have any. There are a few blood related labs in the first couple years of med school. But they're few and far between and it probably wouldn't be hard for him to skip them.malaz wrote:I am not sure, if there are any blood related labs in the first four years. i'll ask my brother (he's in his fourth year of uni. majoring in science aspiring to be a doctor...)
