Foundations of Doctoring Curriculum - Phase III


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 practice and further develop the basic skills necessary to be an excellent physician in whichever field you choose. 

In Phase 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 experienc.
  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

  • Continuity clinic with a primary care or specialist physician preceptor
  • Hidden curriculum sessions
  • Interprofessional Education Clinical Transformations Simulation
