Forum Name: Becoming a Medical Student

Question: Is Physics useful?

med-geek - Sat Jun 11, 2005 8:44 pm

I'm a Canadian high school student that is extremely interested in medicine. I know I need Physics to enter University and eventually med school but is it vital to becoming a doctor??

I am from australia and it is a pre-requisite here.
as far as I am aware, physics is rarely used in the study of medicine, however it represents the ability of higher level thinking, practical application and problem solving. all essential in the study of medicine.

good luck with your studies.
