A few requirement questions.

Hi,

 

I'm currently at UofT doing my undergraduate in life science and bioethics. I've recently notice that neither of my credits require any statistic courses. I do plan on pursuing a master if med school does not work out, if that is the case, would it be necessary for me to take at least one statistic course? UofT offers STA220H and STA250H, I've recieve high recommendations for both courses, but I am not quite sure of which to take.

 

Also, I will be finishing my second year this May, but I will also be switching majors. This will require me to take a few more 200 courses to fulfill my requirements, would med school not look too kindly on me doing at more than half of my 3rd year with 200 courses (mostly philosophy and perhaps 1 100 level English)? In addition, I will be pushing some 300 courses up to my 4th year, which means less space for any 400 courses. Is it necessary to take a few 400 courses and if so, how many?

 

Since I am doing a double major, I am also restricted by the types of 400 courses I can take (many of which require that you are in their specialist). Would there be anything else I can do?

 

Thanks in advance for all of your help!

Hi mindteaser,

 

With respect to statistics, if you're thinking of pursuing a M.Sc. then some stats knowledge can only help you. (You'll see p-values all over research papers, and it's nice to know what they mean! :) ) As to whether or not it's required to enter a Masters program, it all depends on the type of program for which you're aiming. For example, for the Dept. of Public Health Sciences M.Sc. Epidemiology program, as of next year, a full credit in Biostatistics or Statistics will be a requirement for entry. As to other Masters programs, I'm not so sure.

 

Cheers,

Kirsteen
