With Doctor Day 2018 fast approaching, organizers are getting close to their goal of 400 participants. To date, more than 350 physicians and medical students have registered for the event, which is being held Tuesday, Jan. 30 in Madison.
Doctor Day 2018 is well-timed for physicians to be able to meet with their legislators and/or staff members and to have input on important health care issues. Before heading to the Capitol, participants will hear from speakers and take part in an issue briefing. Gov. Scott Walker is the invited keynote speaker and Guy J. DuBeau, JD, one of the state’s top medical liability attorneys, will provide an update on Mayo v. Wisconsin Injured Patients and Families Compensation Fund. He’ll discuss how this case, which is currently being heard by the Wisconsin Supreme Court, left the state with no limit on noneconomic damages in medical liability cases and what physician organizations are doing to fix that problem.
There is no fee to participate, and lunch will be provided. The day will conclude with a reception at DLUX in downtown Madison. Click here for a tentative schedule and to register.
