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

Leadership series now enrolling for spring

Registration is open for the spring session of the Wisconsin Medical Society’s “Leading Healthy Work Systems.” The three-part leadership series is March 10, April 7 and May 5 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Society headquarters in Madison.

To date, 70 physicians have completed the extremely popular program, which was designed and is 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. Those completing this peer-to-peer learning experience can earn up to 15.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.

“Although I have participated in many leadership training courses, this one was unique in the sense that I was able to interact with physician leaders from across the entire state of Wisconsin,” said Jose Ortiz, MD, after completing the fall 2016 program. “This course/experience is a must for all physician leaders during a difficult time in health care. It allows you to step back and remember why we went into medicine.” Doctor Ortiz is assistant clinical professor of orthopedics and chief of medical staff at Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire.

Physicians interested in participating in the spring 2017 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.

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

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.
