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

Free financial literacy panel and dinner Sept. 13

Limited space remains for “What I Wish I Knew: Financial literacy for medical students, residents and young physicians” being held Sept. 13 at Society headquarters in Madison. The complimentary dinner and panel discussion will feature experts in the areas of student loan management, legal issues related to licensure and employment, insurance and estate planning, and taxation.

“Based on what we have heard from physicians who have gone through the transitions from medical student, to resident, to practicing physician, this program has been designed to help answer questions—or bring attention to—some important issues that aren’t necessarily addressed during medical training,” said Foundation Executive Director Eileen Wilson. “It’s also a great opportunity for young physicians, residents and students to network with some of their colleagues.”

A buffet dinner will begin at 4:30 p.m. followed by the panel discussion at 5:30 p.m. Panelists will be available after the program to answer additional questions.

The evening is being hosted by the Wisconsin Medical Society Foundation, in partnership with the Wisconsin Medical Society and Wisconsin Medical Society Insurance and Financial Services.

There is no fee for this event, but registration is required. To RSVP or for more information, e-mail Foundation Program Coordinator Elizabeth Ringle or call her at 608.442.3789.
