Vision, Values, and Leadership: Shaping the Future of Radiology at the 66th Annual Meeting of the Wisconsin Radiological Society

Kohler, WI US
April 11, 2015

The Wisconsin Radiological Society Program Committee would like to address the need for strategic planning and developing leaders in radiology to respond to the ongoing changes in healthcare delivery. The program will feature lectures based on leadership, management and the role of organized medicine. The aging population, changes in federal law and the growing cumulative economic burden of healthcare are resulting in ongoing fundamental changes to the structure of healthcare delivery and payment models.  Radiologists need to understand how these changes will impact their practices to best serve patients and the medical community
