UC-Davis Program Focuses on Physician-Patient Interactions
The "doctoring program" at UC-Davis' medical school is designed to improve physician-patient communication and provide students with guidance to help them make good clinical and ethical decisions. Professor Michael Wilkes leads the program, which is modeled after a similar program that Wilkes started 20 years ago at UCLA. Wilkes said the program aims to encourage future physicians to pay closer attention to medical costs, preventive services and patient-focused care.
