How much Chemistry is there in Medicine?

<p>My title is pretty much my question.. How much Chemistry is there in Medicine actually, as compared to the other courses/modules like Physiology, Genetics etc.?</p>

<p>Chemistry is the base of most of biology, and you need to know the foundation before you can get into the specifics of other things.</p>

<p>Lots of Biochem in Med. School.</p>

<p>You definitely need to a solid background in chemistry to understand all the molecular biology and biochemistry that are a significant part of the basic sciences in medical school. The human body is essentially a complex chemical machine. However, you will not be doing any quantities chemistry problem solving in medical school, unless you are involved in research.</p>
