Foundations of Medicine (FOM) Years 1 & 2

In 2003 UMMS began our curriculum redesign process by defining interrelated competencies for undergraduate medical education. After extensive self-study, review of external models and contemporary initiatives we defined a new curriculum footprint that was unanimously endorsed by the EPC in 2008. Over the subsequent months we have defined a new vision for the curriculum that builds on our strengths, addresses the needs of the Commonwealth and the US healthcare system and supports students to identify, solidify and pursue their passions.
