THE FOUNDATIONS CURRICULUM, A NEW PROGRAM FOR THE FIRST TWO YEARS OF MEDICAL SCHOOL TO LAUNCH IN AUGUST 2016


The U of T MD program, like most North American medical schools, is four years in length.  The final two years are known as the Clerkship (which involves learning while working with physicians and other health care team members in the hospital and clinic).  The first two years of the program occur in laboratory, classroom, clinical, and community settings and are designed to prepare students for the work-place learning that occurs in clerkship.

We are redeveloping the first two years of the MD program.  The new Foundations Curriculum will be launched for students entering the U of T MD program in August 2016.  It will feature a highly integrated program with clinical content from the beginning of medical school, early exposure to patients and the community setting, extensive use of eLearning materials and an assessment program designed to support learning.  Learn more about the Foundations Curriculum
