Foundations in Clinical Medicine I

The goal of the FCM I course is to teach students core clinical skills required for excellence as a medical professional. This course will help students develop knowledge, skills and attitudes essential to the practice of medicine. This course also introduces Physical Diagnosis skills, History Taking and Communication skills early in medical training to allow for repetition and deliberate practice necessary to achieve proficiency in these skills by graduation. Students should note that course directors have collaborated to integrate content in preclinical coursework when possible to provide clinical relevance.
