Registration Open for Wisconsin GME Summit, November 15 in Madison

On November 15, the Wisconsin Council on Medical Education and Workforce (WCMEW) and the Wisconsin Collaborative for Rural GME (WCRGME) will offer the one-day event, “Wisconsin GME Summit: Celebrating Successes and Exploring Opportunities” at the Best Western Plus – Inn on the Park in Madison. To register, visit: https://events.SignUp4.net/16WCMEW-GME-1115

This one-day Summit will highlight the challenges and opportunities in expanding graduate medical education (GME) programs in Wisconsin. The agenda will include an examination of the current state of Wisconsin’s GME efforts, as well as two panel discussions focused on Wisconsin’s state-funded GME grant programs, one including grantees who have started new programs and the other with those who have expanded existing programs. Using small group discussion format, the afternoon will focus on the topics of garnering broad community support for a GME program, effectively using technology to deliver GME training and support, and developing GME partnerships for efficiency.

For more information, including the day’s agenda and online registration, visit https://events.SignUp4.net/16WCMEW-GME-1115.

This event is jointly presented by the Wisconsin Council on Medical Education and Workforce (WCMEW) and the Wisconsin Collaborative for Rural GME (WCRGME). WCMEW is a multi-stakeholder organization whose purpose is to facilitate strategies to assure an adequate supply of health care providers to meet the needs of Wisconsin citizens today and into the future. WCRGME was established to address the shortage of rural primary care physicians through the expansion of GME. It is a network of organizations developing and maintaining rural residency rotations, rural training track residency programs and rural fellowships.
