Abstract

It is clear that no matter what type of national health care reform is adopted, there will be a shift in the care that physicians are asked to provide: from high-tech to patient-centered, from cost-indifferent to cost- conscious, from treatment-focused to prevention-focused. It is critical that physicians be adequately trained to meet these new challenges. The medical education community needs to search for innovative, creative approaches to help our students develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to practice medicine in the next century. Doctoring is UCLA's approach to such curriculum reform.
