On Doctoring is a two-year course that provides an understanding of the role of the physician in the clinical setting and in the community through longitudinal clinical and didactic experiences in the first two years of medical school. During the first year, the course focuses on patient interviewing, physical diagnosis, patient write-ups, and the doctor-patient relationship. The second year builds on these skills with the addition of oral presentations.
