    Hey, I'm aiming for a career in Medical Laboratory Sciences in Canada.

    The entrance requirements for the 22 month course I plan to take are....

    Entrance Requirements
    24 credits of post secondary education* from a recognized college or university including General Chemistry (3 credits), Intro to Physical Chemistry (3 credits) or Intro to Organic Chemistry (3 credits), Anatomy & Physiology (6 credits), Biology (6 credits), Basic Statistical Analysis (3 credits), and Communications (3 credits).

    Will I need Calculus for this? And can those university credits be obtained in a single year of university?

    Thanks!

    Hi -

    Calculus is not listed in the prerequisites, however Statistics is. Generally Calculus is interchangeable for statistics, but not the other way around. I don't know if that's the case for you though.

    Also - you most likely cannot attain all of those credits in one semester. I would suggest splitting it up over two. For example:

    Semester One:
    General chemistry
    Anatomy & physiology
    Biology
    Communications

    Semester Two:
    Intro to P-Chem
    Organic Chem
    Anatomy & Physiology
    Biology
    Statistics

    Or however you like - it's just a lot to take in one semester, most schools won't let you take that much.

    Hope this helps!
