The Rural Outreach initiative is an opportunity for emergency physicians who practice outside of the "Madison-Milwaukee corridor" to engage with WACEP! Whether you practice in southwest Wisconsin or elsewhere, we hope you'll join us September 6, 2019 in Richland Center. This program is offered complimentary basis, but registration is required.
The program beings on Friday morning with an educational component, including med-flight review, acute stroke updates and hands-on ultrasound techniques. In the afternoon, attendees are welcome to explore the area or sit in on the WACEP Board meeting. In the evening, everyone is invited to reconvene for an off-site dinner and social. For those who wish to make it a mini-getaway and stay through the weekend, lots of options are available for you and your families to get out and explore beautiful southwest Wisconsin!
