Symposium for Senior Physicians Fall 2019
The majority of MCW’s physician alumni practice medicine in private practice and are far removed from academic medical center happenings. With every passing year, institutions are finding innovative 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.
The primary audiences for this symposium are semi-retired and retired physicians. The subject matter focuses on their areas of interest. This gives MCW an opportunity to highlight clinical practice and research at a high-level to a specific group of individuals.
As an institution of learning, it is important to offer opportunities for learners during all stages of their careers. Retired and semi-retired physicians need venues to learn – not only for their patients but for themselves – conditions that impact the aging population. This symposium is an ideal avenue for them to gain awareness, astute knowledge of specific topics and learn things they can utilize in practice and at home.
