WCMEW to Host 2018 Interdisciplinary Health Care Workforce Summit, November 2

August 14, 2018

Registration is now open for “Creating the Clinical Workforce We Need: Policies, Strategies, and Innovations in Wisconsin,” a workforce summit developed by the Wisconsin Council on Medical Education and Workforce (WCMEW) and scheduled for November 2.

The summit will feature keynote presenter Scott Shipman, MD, PhD, Director of Primary Care Initiatives and Workforce Analysis with the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). Dr. Shipman coordinates primary care-oriented activities across the AAMC, and guides promotion of primary care in emerging high-value ambulatory care models, with a focus on improving care at the interface of primary and specialty care. He also co-founded a Physician Assistant training program in New Hampshire, and consults on new models of care delivery for programs cross the U.S.

The full-day event is designed to bring policymakers, implementers, and providers together to bridge silos and work cooperatively to address the interdisciplinary health care workforce needs of today and in the future.
