Abstract
Background: In India, medical education entails instruction in a wide range of fields, including exposure to human interactions and interpersonal connections in a variety of contexts, such as hospitals, communities, and clinics. The program is rigorous and involves a high level of dedication, perseverance, and lifelong learning. This is planned to be accomplished by a 1-month dedicated “Foundation Course” at the start of the MBBS program.

Aim and Objective: The purpose of this study is to learn about the students’ perspectives on various aspects of the foundation course.

Materials and Methods: At the end of the foundation course, 1124 students from several medical institutions in Gujarat were given an online feedback form with a pre-designed questionnaire. Medical ethics, attitudes, and professionalism, universal precautions and vaccinations, patient safety and biohazard safety, principles of primary care, language and communication skills, time management, stress management, first aid, and basic life support are some of the important objectives covered in the foundation course.

Results: About 91.81% of students feel that foundation course is required. Only 45.37% of students were happy with the current duration of course. 43.86% of students like sport in extracurricular activities, which highest among all. Basic life support is most liked topic learned in foundation course.

Conclusion: The foundation course, which takes place at the start of the MBBS program, will familiarize the new medical student with the necessary information and abilities. The basis course will also lay a solid foundation for studying in the MBBS program and afterward in their careers.
