WCMEW to Host 2018 Interdisciplinary Health Care Workforce Summit, Nov. 2

October 02, 2018

Registration is open for the 2018 Wisconsin Council on Medical Education and Workforce (WCMEW) Summit Creating the Clinical Workforce We Need: Policies, Strategies and Innovations in Wisconsin. The Summit, scheduled for November 2 in Wisconsin Dells, will take an interdisciplinary, forward-focused approach to workforce issues and is an ideal venue for policymakers, health care leaders, educators and clinicians to connect across professions and traditional industry silos. 

The 2018 Summit will include a keynote address by Scott Shipman, MD, PhD, Director of Primary Care Initiatives and Workforce Analysis for the Association of American Medical Colleges. Dr. Shipman will focus on efforts to promote high-value delivery of primary care and discuss how policies inform the workforce in a health care setting. The agenda will also include sessions focused on clinical site coordination, engagement and retention trends, workforce strategic planning, data-informed decision making, and program development.

A full agenda and other registration details are available. Contact Richelle Andrae of WCMEW with any content questions, or Kayla Chatterton with registration questions.
