MCW Today, Tomorrow and Beyond Symposium 2016

Milwaukee, WI US
April 30, 2016

The vast majority of MCW’s physician-alumni base practice medicine in a private setting and are far removed from academic medical center happenings. With every passing year, institutions are finding new ways of educating the next generation of health care providers and finding new approaches to patient care delivery. We, as an institution of academic medicine, must serve as a resource to inspire lifelong learning amongst our alumni constituencies and provide perspective for gaining new knowledge.  

Specifically, this symposium, titled “MCW Today, Tomorrow and Beyond” will provide education of the following topics: MCW’s newest initiatives and highest level priorities in education, research, clinical service and community engagement; global health advancements in addressing inequities, from neighborhoods to nations; and interprofessional learning experiences across disciplines and implications on the future’s health care professionals.

The Medical College of Wisconsin is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Medical College of Wisconsin designates this live activity for a maximum of 2.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
