WHA to Establish Rural Physician Leader Roundtable

January 02, 2020

WHA will create a Rural Physician Leader Roundtable in 2020. The roundtable will be a forum for physician leaders in rural communities to connect with each other, discuss common challenges, and to help one another become more effective physician leaders. WHA will facilitate the roundtable with the Rural Wisconsin Health Cooperative as a close partner.

WHA expects the roundtable to meet for one hour each quarter, with participation possible via webinar, teleconference or inperson. WHA will provide logistical support. The roundtable participants themselves will decide what they want to discuss and how to maximize the value of this forum. We anticipate this to be a highly-interactive networking and learning opportunity for physician leaders in rural settings.

If you would like to nominate a physician leader from your organization who works in a rural setting to participate in this roundtable, contact WHA Chief Medical Officer Mark Kaufman, MD. Self-nominations are welcome. Please submit nominations by January 17.

WHA anticipates the first meeting will take place in February. Feel free to contact Dr. Kaufman with any questions, comments or suggestions.
