Background: There is provision of 1 month of foundation course at the beginning of MBBS course under competency-based medical education (CBME). Objective: The objective was to study feedback by undergraduate medical students for the foundation course under CBME. It is important to know whether the students are satisfied with the content, quality, and the way in which the foundation course is conducted. This helps in providing clues to improve the quality. As this is a new initiative, adequate data on this subject matter is yet to come. Materials and Methods: An institution-based cross-sectional study was conducted among the undergraduate batch of MBBS students admitted in 2019 at one medical college. Students who attended all sessions on all days of foundation course were included in the study. Students who have not attended all sessions (or missed even 1 session) of foundation course were excluded from the study. Out of 250 students, 134 (53.6%) had attended all the sessions on all days. The data were collected in the predesigned, pretested, and semi-structured study questionnaire. For each module, quality, content, and usefulness were scored by the students using a five-point Likert scale. Results: In the present study, we observed that with regard to the content, quality, and usefulness of all the modules, more than 90% of students were happy and satisfied over the way in which this foundation course was conducted at this medical college Conclusion: The students opined that foundation course was satisfactory. Challenges faced in conducting this program were to make all the students attend all the sessions on all days.
