Most medical schools require 1 semester of statistics. Also During college you must complete the math required for your bachelors degree which can include calculus for most science and business majors.

Thanks, I understand now the difference between calculus and statistics Irene M.

Not more than the math needed to enter medical school i.e needed to take the MCAT. Not all medical schools require calculus as a prerequisite. You just need enough math to enter medical and that all for math.

One semester of calculus. Hopefully you can pass the AP test and get out of your calculus in college. Also you could take calculus at a community college.

One semester of calculus should fulfill the pre-med requirements. With regard to how much math is required in the daily life of a cardiologist? Almost none. If you need to perform a calculation, you will have a computer there to run the numbers.
