Doctoring and Clinical Skills (DoCS)
Doctoring and Clinical Skills is a longitudinal course focused on the clinical practice theme and students’ introduction to the care of patients. The four major areas addressed in DOCS are history taking, physical exam, clinical reasoning and professionalism. The course will combine classroom exercises, small group discussions, skills practice with your peers and standardized patients, clinical simulation-based exercises for formative and summative assessment, and a longitudinal outpatient clinical experience through ELI2TE. The goal is to help prepare students to become patient-centered physicians in the clerkships and beyond.
