Foundations of Research and Critical Thinking Course

FantryThe Class of 2017 is the first class to take part in this new, required course for all medical students, called Foundations of Research and Critical Thinking (FRCT). The goals of the FRCT course are to stimulate critical thinking, enhance intellectual acuity and inquisitiveness in our medical students, and to foster excellence in the development of clinician educators, clinician scientists and physician investigators. Because the future of medicine will focus less on a vast fund of knowledge, and more on excellent analytic and critical thinking skills, the FRCT course will establish an early research culture in medical students, serving as a basis for these skills.
