• OUR MISSION

    Improve the health of the people of Wisconsin by supporting and strengthening physicians' ability to practice high-quality patient care in a changing environment.

Council on Legislation

The Council on Legislation plans, organizes and implements programs to protect and preserve the legislative, socioeconomic and political interests of Wisconsin Medical Society members. This council analyzes state and federal legislation and administrative rules and policies, informs Society members regarding proposed legislation and other public policy initiatives, and promotes and encourages Society members to be politically active — individually and collectively.

Current topics include informed consent and the impact of current legislative decisions, physician health program proposals, social media and health care, and state budget issues.
