The first two years of the MD Program – known as Foundations - take place in laboratory, classroom, clinical, and community settings and are designed to prepare students for the workplace learning that occurs in clerkship.
Spanning 72 weeks, each week of Foundations has its own objectives and assessments to guide student learning and build toward their achievement of the MD program’s key and enabling competencies.
For a description of the design of the curriculum for first and second year, please refer to the MD Program Academic Calendar
