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

Society accepting physician applications for innovative leadership program

Physicians who are in current or emerging leadership roles are encouraged to engage in a dynamic, new leadership program. Leading Healthy Work Systems will be offered by the Wisconsin Medical Society for the first time this fall and again in the spring of 2015. Developed and led by systems and human factors engineer Katherine Sanders, PhD, the program is designed to help physicians transform their work life to better serve patients, effectively lead professional teams and overall have a more balanced life as a healer.

The program has been generously subsidized by funding from The Physicians Foundation and will be conducted through three interactive sessions using seminal research and peer-to-peer dialogue. The program sessions are scheduled for Fridays, Oct. 3, Oct. 31 and Nov. 21 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Society’s headquarters in Madison. Number of physician participants is limited to 20 per session.

Physicians completing the program will earn up 15.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ accredited through the Wisconsin Medical Society. The tuition fee for each participant is $450 for a Society member and $600 for a non-member and includes materials, meals, CME certificate and travel reimbursement upon request through grant funding.
