2019 WREN Conference Agenda

On Friday September 13th, nearly 55 people engaged in collective learning for the 2019 WREN Conference, Meaningful Medicine:  Lifelong Learning in Your Practice, which was held at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health – Health Sciences Learning Center (HSLC) in Madison, WI.

The HSLC location served as an appropriate backdrop for learning the importance of practice-based research in the primary care setting, followed by physicians who provided their perspectives on adding meaning to their practice through program development. Topics included intellectual curiosity as the basis for practice to research, maintaining work-life balance, and a residency experience with an innovative research project. A panel of practicing physicians and a medical student discussed how they wove research activities into their professional lives.  In a special session, several medical students engaged in research gave oral presentations on their findings.  The day concluded with a poster presentation/reception for about 20 medical students who shared information on their research projects.
