    Hey everyone...I was wondering if anyone could help me with this. I have contacted a few schools who said Biochemistry would count as one of the 2 semesters of "inorganic chem" that are required. Does anyone know if this is common knowledge, ie that a Biochem course (in the chem dept) would fulfill one of the 2 semesters of inorganic chem? Any input would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks, have a great day! :)

    I've read of a few schools that accept Biochem w/a lab in place of one semester of OCHEM, not inorganic. I'd have to look it up for sure, though.

    Yeah, by going to the individual medical school websites that you are applying to and looking under pre-reqs or something like that. Some will let you substitute but from my reading many do not.
