Yes; in order to get into medical school, you must take two semesters of inorganic chemistry and two semesters of organic chemistry in college (in addition to other premed requirements). In medical school, you take classes that also require a knowledge of chemistry such as biochemistry. Hope this helps! Dr. B

There are no major requirements to become a pediatrician...theoretically, you could major in underwater basket-weaving and still become a pediatrician. What you do have to concern yourself with is meeting the minimum requirements for medical school. So, while you are in college, you must (for most medical schools) take 2 semesters each of biology, chemistry, organic chemistry and physics (and it doesn't hurt to take other advanced science courses like microbiology, anatomy and biochemistry). Nonetheless, when you are closer to your decision, make sure to contact the schools, that you are considering, to make sure that you have fulfilled all of their requirements.
