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’s spring leadership series nearing capacity; registration also open for fall

Just a few open spots remain for the Wisconsin Medical Society’s 2016 spring session of Leading Healthy Work Systems. The three-part leadership program is March 25, April 22 and May 20 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Society headquarters in Madison.

The fall 2015 Leading Health Work Systems class. Designed and facilitated by systems and human factors engineer Katherine Sanders, PhD, the program 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. Physicians completing this peer-to-peer learning experience can earn up to 15.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.

Leading Healthy Work Systems allowed me to have tremendous insight into the history and structure of being a successful leader,” said Neel Karne, MD, chairman of Department of Surgery and president-elect of Medical Staff at Beloit Health System, after completing the program. “I was able to connect with other physicians in Wisconsin who expressed similar concerns and recognized where we as physicians need to improve our role in health systems and be our own best advocates.”

Physicians interested in participating in either the spring or fall 2016 programs should e-mail Todd Wuerger or call him at 608.442.3749. The dates for the fall program are Sept. 23, Oct. 21 and Nov. 18. Registration for both the spring and fall sessions 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.
