Enrollment now open for fall physician leadership series

The Wisconsin Medical Society is now accepting applications for the fall session of Leading Healthy Work Systems, a three-part leadership series being held Sept. 25, Oct. 23 and Nov. 20 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Society headquarters in Madison.

Led by systems and human factors engineer Katherine Sanders, PhD, the program provides a platform 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.

Donn Dexter, MD, FAAN, the Society’s chief medical officer, recently completed the spring program.

“I found it to be a great way to learn about systems, how they work, why they fail and what can be done to improve them,” said Dr. Dexter. “I enjoyed interacting in meaningful discussion with physician colleagues and came away with excellent resources and identified areas for continued reflection and growth as a leader.”

Physicians completing this peer-to-peer learning experience can earn up to 15.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. The tuition includes materials, meals and travel reimbursement upon request through grant funding.

Physicians interested in participating in the fall 2015 program should contact Todd Wuerger at 608.442.3749. The deadline to register is Aug. 21; registration will be capped at 16 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.
