Can you still try for being a doctor even if you are bad at math?
Even when I was young, I wasn't really confident in math nor even good at it. Where I am curious if I can still run towards my dream which is becoming a neurosurgeon even if I am bad at math. #math #medicine #college
For many undergraduate degrees calculus and statistics are required.
That said, there isn't much math in the daily life of a physician.
Best of luck!
Hope you are doing well. You don't have to be a good in math to pursue medicine. The most important thing that you have to think about is how much dedication are you willing to give when you pursue that career. Being a doctor does not require being good in math but would require commitment.
Absolutely you can! I have friends in medical school who struggled with math, no one expects you to be perfect. It is definitely major dependent but I was a biology major and the highest level of math I needed to take was calculus for which I also struggled, but sought out tutoring and YouTube videos for help and was ultimately successful.
Keep pushing for med school if that is your dream regardless if you are not the best at math!
Best of luck!
Simi recommends the following next steps:
Now, the minimum math requirement for these types of pre-med majors usually aren't higher math, probably only getting to the pre-calculus level. You'd have to check with the specific university and the department that offers the major you're interested in.
One thing to know is that universities often have tutors and other types of services that are geared toward helping you pass the math requirements. So don't despair! If you're interested in being a surgeon, the math requirements are doable.
Igal recommends the following next steps:
No worry about math if you want to study med in future.
It doesn't require a math-brain to study in this career, cause almost all the formulae is set.
Best of Luck!
