EME-012: Role of Medical Schools in the Community

Role of Medical Schools in the Community: The Wisconsin Medical Society:

  • Respectfully recommends that both medical schools be encouraged to work within Wisconsin to provide high-quality and appropriately distributed clinical services to underserved communities in the state, as part of reducing health care disparities in the most efficient manner possible while providing supervised experience to young physicians and medical students.
  • Supports developing a set of principles that would guide the communication and interactions between the private medical community and the medical schools as they pursue their educational mission. These principles should be developed in consultation with the medical schools and the private medical community and should address the potential for conflict and ways to facilitate the resolution of conflicts that arise.
