Meeting the healthcare needs of Wisconsin’s citizens amid the current provider workforce shortage presents challenges and opportunities. The Wisconsin Council on Medical Education and Workforce (WCMEW) convenes the Wisconsin Workforce Summit annually with the express purpose of bringing together stakeholders to develop strategies that address healthcare workforce needs, now and in the future.


The number of providers in Wisconsin is currently insufficient to meet the needs of its residents, especially in rural geographic and other under-served areas. It is anticipated that this trend will continue. Additional challenges to delivering healthcare include provider burnout and addressing the educational needs of future healthcare providers. These problems are being further magnified by the COVID-19 Pandemic and can also negatively impact healthcare access, disparities, and patient outcomes.

Planning for and ensuring an adequate workforce and infrastructure to support healthcare for now and in the future is critical for the health of Wisconsin citizens and beyond. Organizations and academic institutions need tools and strategies for policy change and to be able to adapt to new and challenging circumstances within their healthcare delivery systems and educational structures.

Global Learning Objectives

By the end of the summit learners will be able to:

  1. Describe the current healthcare workforce climate in Wisconsin
  2. Examine innovative healthcare education and training developments in Wisconsin
  3. Identify best practices of healthcare delivery in a COVID-19 environment
  4. Select appropriate strategies to address challenging workforce issues
  5. Discuss how the interprofessional team contributes to positive outcomes in healthcare delivery and professional satisfaction


This CE activity has been designed to change learner competence and focuses on the American Board of Medical Specialties' areas of practice-based learning and improvement and systems-based practice, the Institute of Medicine areas of employing evidence-based practice, Pharmacy area of interprofessional collaboration and the Interprofessional and Nursing areas of teams and teamwork.

Intended Audience

    Her education career actually started in radio as an announcer and then doing commercials. Terry enjoys working with interprofessional teams to create education that will leave the participant changed for the better. It is great fun to work on a concept or topic all the way to fruition and delivery. Creating education that matters is a process and understanding that education isn’t always the delivery of information, but can be used to eliminate redundancies, remove barriers and create a flow within each step. Trying to discover the “whys” and then working through building an “out of the box” intervention that allows for effectiveness, efficiency and outcomes that can be documented, is like putting in the last piece of a puzzle. Terry also is a firm believer in fun. Education and learning does not equal serious!
