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
practice and further develop the basic skills necessary to be an excellent
physician in whichever field you choose.
III, our goals are to:
1. Continue to build your basic
knowledge, skills and behaviors developed in the first two years within a
continuity clinic experience
2. 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.
3. Facilitate your reflection on particular
issues that may affect your professional development, yet are not necessarily
addressed in the structured curriculum.
The FDC in
Phase III is composed of the following activities:
clinic with a primary care or specialist physician preceptor
