Directors of Clinical Skills (DOCS) site

We recently received the following from Michelle Daniel at Brown.

Dear Colleagues,

Happy New Year (a bit belated). Please help us reach our new years resolution: to get as many individuals signed up on the Directors of Clinical Skills (DOCS) website as possible so we can begin to NETWORK! If you have not yet registered please go to http://directorsofclinicalskillscourses.webs.com and do so ASAP (it's quick). Please also ask any other faculty at your (or another) institution who are leaders in clinical skills courses to join us, too (and let us know if you are no longer a director and do not wish to receive future communications.) Future emails regarding DOCS meetings, the newsletter, questions for the membership, etc... will only be sent to those registered on the site.
