In July, each Foundations Site conducts an Orientation program for incoming students. All incoming students are required to be at their Foundations site, ready to participate in Orientation before classes begin. Orientation sessions are designed to familiarize you with the School of Medicine’s resources and services to help you onboard into medical school. A detailed schedule of Orientation will be sent to you over the summer as well as a link to your site specific Orientation Canvas page. Foundation Phase classes will begin on July 21, 2022.
In addition, the school will hold a Clinical Immersion week to prepare you for the Foundations Phase of the curriculum, focusing on clinical skills practice. This portion will begin in early September after you have completed your first Foundations course.
