Doctors Ought to Care is a nationwide organization of physicians and medical students dedicated to working with young people in order to promote healthy lifestyles. Locally, UW medical students are trained to give talks on a number of health-related issues. In addition, DOC sponsors other topics, such as alternatives to violence. In this way, DOC hopes to help educate young people at the critical period of time when they are forming lifetime health habits.
DOC is sponsored by the University of Wisconsin Department of Family Medicine. The DOC Program works solely to provide information to students as it pertains to their health.
