Mentoring for FRCT

The Foundations of Research and Critical Thinking (FRCT) is a required course in the medical school curriculum. The goals of FRCT are to stimulate critical thinking, to enhance intellectual acuity and inquisitiveness in our medical students, and to foster excellence in the development of clinician educators, clinician scientists and physician investigators. A key component of FRCT is a requirement that all medical students complete a Scholarly Project. We welcome faculty members to serve as enthusiastic and engaging mentors for student Scholarly Projects.
