Medical schools partner with Society to prep health care teams for summer

Summer may seem a long way off, but faculty from the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) and the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health (UWSMPH) are teaming up with the Wisconsin Medical Society to host From Asthma to Zika: A Physician’s Guide to Summer April 5-6 in Madison.

The two-day education and networking event will feature a full lineup of speakers from MCW and UWSMPH addressing emerging health trends in infectious disease, environmental health and trauma.

In addition, Saturday keynote speaker Kyu Rhee, MD, MPP, will discuss the future of medicine using artificial intelligence. Dr. Rhee is vice president and chief health officer of IBM Corporation and IBM Watson Health.

Physicians will also be able to fulfill their two-hour opioid education requirement by participating in the pre-conference session Alternatives to Opioids in Treating Acute and Chronic Pain. Presented by Michael McNett, MD, from 9-11 a.m. on Friday April 5, this session has been approved by the Wisconsin Medical Examining Board.
