I'm currently an undergrad studying pathobiology and I'm pretty sure that after college, I am going to pursue a MPH in either infectious disease epidemiology or public health informatics (ideally, I'd find a school where I could study both). I have to take organic chemistry to fulfill a requirement for my major, but my school offers two ochem pathways and I'm not sure which one to choose. One is a one-semester, "abridged" version with optional lab that covers only the necessities and one is the normal two-semester sequence with lab. Is an in-depth knowledge of ochem at all necessary to get into school for either of the things I'm interested in studying?
