Foundations of Doctoring Curriculum

The Foundations of Doctoring Curriculum (FDC) is a three-year curriculum required of all students admitted to the University of Colorado School of Medicine (SOM).  Our goal is to provide you with the opportunity to develop the basic clinical skills necessary to be an excellent physician in whichever field you ultimately choose.  These skills are taught in the context of the block curricula and much of the clinical content will be integrated with the blocks.
