It certainly would behoove you to take statistics. For experimental design it's pretty much a requirement.
And usually all that're applied in practice, right?endotropic said:For Pharmacology PhD programs in the US I can tell you that intro level statistics and calculus are really all that most program require.
You'll be in fine shape.Acanthus said:So yea I decided to do the analysis of change (higher calculus), techniques for modelling (advanced), multivariable calculus, and differential equations with modelling. Hopefully that will get the ball of spinning.
Great. You've made progress and are well on your way.I did talk to a course advisor but she wasn't a pharmacologist or from that department
This ^ is precisely what you should ask the pharmocology dept's undergrad advisor when you get him or her on the phone or email.just take whatever the prerequisites for the program are.
The bare bitter TRUTHAlso, if you tell 98% of people (professors, colleauges) in science that you have this interest they will blacklist you and think you are a loser stoner. Most people in science aren't exactly "hip" if you get me
IME this is mostly/generally the case. Being interested in psychoactive substances =/= (does not equal) a career in such.you'll end up stuck in post docs working 7 days a week 14 hours a day making under 40 K for 5-15 years after your PhD.
