Q on Ochem labs

We have 6 yrs of course work and 4 cr. of separate lab class for Ochem. I plan to take the lab this Spring, I already completed the 6 cr. of classwork. LECOM took my 3 cr. of biochem class and said I did not need to do the OChem lab. I want to make sure I am not missing soemthing I will need in med school. Should I still do the lab?

I hate labs, but actually found organic lab fairly enjoyable. It was just a constant stream of work. I wouldn't say there is anything you NEED to know. It might help to know basic lab techniques but I highly doubt you'll be doing much organic chemistry in medical school.

Agreed that Ochem Lab was as cool as it gets, though somewhat time consuming, as far as labs go.

However, if you don't need it to satisfy any requirements, for sure, then you definitely don't need to take it for med school.

However, if you'd like to do some chemistry/biochem type research, then it could definitely help you there.
