2020 Physician Leadership Development Conference
Friday, March 13 and Saturday, March 14, 2020

Physician leaders must represent both clinical and management interests. Those new to the role are often challenged to move beyond their clinical expertise as they are asked to problem solve, lead their clinical colleagues and manage needed change in a rapidly evolving health care environment.

The annual WHA Physician Leadership Development Conference is an opportunity for Wisconsin hospitals and health systems to offer their physicians CME-qualifying education focused on developing their leadership skills. The conference features nationally renowned speakers at a reasonable price and with minimal travel time for participants.

Due to the success of the previous year, the 2020 conference will once again offer a track of education specific to senior physician leaders as well as developing physician leaders. Non-physician leaders attending the conference may accompany their physician leaders to the Friday education session, network at the Friday evening dinner event, and then join their physician colleagues at either of the two Saturday morning educational tracks.  

New this year! Due to past attendee feedback, additional speakers have been added to the conference agenda. This added value to the conference will further develop the knowledge base of all attendees.

This educational activity is jointly provided by AXIS Medical Education and the Wisconsin Hospital Association.
