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

Registration for spring 2016 leadership series now open

The Wisconsin Medical Society has opened registration for the spring 2016 session of Leading Healthy Work Systems. The three-part leadership program will be held March 25, April 22 and May 20 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Society headquarters in Madison.

The program, designed and facilitated by systems and human factors engineer Katherine Sanders, PhD, provides a forum for physicians in current or emerging leadership roles to participate in in-depth discussions—structured by research, reading assignments and reflective exercises—to assess their work environment and identify leverage points for positive change.

“These sessions bring scientific principles to a lively clinician discussion of the essential elements of a healthy work environment,” said Peter Sanderson, MD, Ministry Health Care’s vice president of clinical transformation, after completing the fall 2015 program. “While the course content was excellent, it was the interaction with my colleagues from around Wisconsin that made this experience fabulous. If you are interested in improving clinician experience and wellbeing, this is the course for you.”

Physicians completing this peer-to-peer learning experience can earn up to 15.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Tuition includes materials and meals.

Physicians interested in participating in the spring 2016 program should e-mail Todd Wuerger or call him at 608.442.3749. Registration will be capped at 15 participants. Click here for more information.

The Wisconsin Medical Society is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Wisconsin Medical Society designates this live activity for a maximum of 15.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Leading Healthy Work Systems is funded in part by a grant from the Physicians Foundation and is sponsored by the Wisconsin Medical Society Foundation.
