You are entering the third year of the Foundations of Doctoring Curriculum (FDC). The overarching goal of the curriculum is to provide you with the opportunity to develop the basic skills necessary to be an excellent physician in whichever field you choose. In Phase III, our goal is for you to build on the basic knowledge, skills and behaviors you have developed in the first two years within a continuity clinic experience. Additionally, we hope to facilitate your career choice. Much of your learning regarding clinical skills will be self-directed in the third year, guided by your experiences with patients, preceptors, supervising residents and attendings.
The FDC Phase III is composed of the following activities:
- Continuity clinic with a primary care or specialist physician preceptor
- Hidden Curriculum sessions
- Clinical Transformations Simulation
