New for Physician Leadership Development Conference: Senior Physician Leaders Education Track

November 27, 2018

The annual WHA Physician Leadership Development Conference includes a new twist in 2019. While the Saturday morning portion of the conference will still include the traditional education track intended for physician leaders seeking to develop or enhance their administrative and leadership skills, there will also be a new education track specifically for senior physician leaders.

This new offering allows senior physician leaders to attend the Friday session with their team, and then attend a Saturday morning education track designed specifically for chief medical officers, vice president of medical affairs or medical director positions, as well as anyone holding similar responsibilities in a Wisconsin hospital or health system.

This senior physician leader education track will include a presentation by UW Health CEO Dr. Alan Kaplan focused on how the senior physician leader’s role will evolve and what leadership capabilities will become more important in the future. Also, attendees will participate in a facilitated roundtable discussion focused on sharing experiences, challenges and opportunities faced by senior physician leaders throughout Wisconsin.
The 2019 WHA Physician Leadership Development Conference is scheduled for March 15-16, 2019, at The American Club in Kohler. An early bird discount is available until January 15, and the special room rate at The American Club is only available until the room block fills, which it does quickly each year, so register and make your hotel reservations today.
