Course Calendars

​What is it?

The School of Medicine creates official calendars for Foundations Phase blocks/courses. You can subscribe to these calendars to receive automatic updates in your personal calendar.

What do I need to know or do?

Calendars for the Foundations Phase are managed in the OpalQM curriculum management system. You can view the calendar information either directly in Opal or by subscribing to your Opal calendar in your UW Exchange Online Calendar or in your Google Calendar.
