I haven't taken Physics yet. There are types of intro Physics in my University both are 8 Semester credits. But the one for health science majors doesn't seem to have a Lab component.

Does this meet the Pre-req for Med schools or am I going to have to take the harder Physics class for Engineering and Physics majors which has a lab component?

The one for Engineering/Physics majors is 10x harder...He's having trouble maintaing a C in that class and he's breezed through Calc 2 and Linear alegebra with A's.

Yes, you need the lab -- but are you sure there's no lab component incorporated in the 'health science majors' option? Maybe they block out part of the lecture time or something? Talk to the physics department about this, as I'm sure it has come up before.
