Welcome to Foundation University Islamabad Campus (FUIC). This Institution offers you high quality most modern medical education, unique learning environment, state of the art facilities, all housed in a purpose built campus. We envisage our graduates as clinically capable doctors who have good understanding of both scientific and humanistic medicine, up-holding the respect of life from the moment of conception to its natural end.
The education system is at par with international standards. Making full use of the most up-todate approach to adult learning and teaching we have adopted student centered approach. Interprofessional education and collaborative practices are embedded in the curriculum, developing awareness of ethical and professional responsibilities.
From the 1st Year the students are introduced to clinical training through the “clinical skill lab” where training in medical history taking, physical examination of the patient and hands-on experience in common procedures like intravenous line intra muscular injections etc. is imparted on manikins and simulators.
We review our program on regular basis in order to keep abreast with latest trends and innovations in learning techniques. The success of our curriculum and teaching is reflected in the outstanding performance of our graduates not only at national level in FCPS program but also at international level in USMLE, PLAP and Australian examinations.
At the end of five years medical course, you graduate with the degree of MBBS and you are entitled to provisionally register with PM&DC for the Foundation Course (house job). Full registration is conferred after one year foundation course. FUIC provides you the opportunity to complete your foundation course (paid house job) under the same university i.e. FUI at Fauji Foundation Hospital (FFH) which is over 750 bedded teaching hospital attached with Foundation University Islamabad Campus.
