Not only that, bio stats and evidence-based medicine is all the rage in medical education right now. All three licensing exams have plenty of biostatistics and understanding biostats takes a decent amount of time and several passes of the material. The earlier you stink at it, the earlier you don't stink at it.

I checked many med school requirements. Most of them need stats. Any stats class should be good enough. It used to be 1 semester of calculus and 1 semester of stats couple of years ago. Looks like things have changed lately.
