I study industrial pharmacy in Italy...

Edit:... :-[ and all I can tell you is that a basic knowledge of inorganic and organic chemistry is required.

Did I miss the context between first and second post?

You'll definitely need _some_ chemistry in all of these subjects (the most in pharmacy). Dependent on you, your university, teachers, tutors this is either a piece of cake or damn hard. If you have the possibility to take a chemistry course now, I can only recommend you to take it. Not that chemistry knowledge did any harm to anybody so far ;)

I would imagine for the different medical fields that Biochemistry would be important as far as chemistry goes. Also in the medical fields biology and anatomy are probably used. A pharmacist definately needs chemistry.
