A Time to Imagine the Possibilities - DFM Blue Sky Event

Wednesday, March 18th
12:00pm - 5:00pm
Pyle Center, Madison, WI

Registration is now closed.

You are invited to join us for a Blue Sky Event to think about the future of the Department of Family Medicine. Blue Sky events are a time to expand our horizons and learn about new possibilities.  This event is for everyone! DFMCH ReCHARGED is for staff. It is for clinicians. DFMCH ReCHARGED is for people who work in clinics and people who work in administrative offices. DFMCH ReCHARGED is for people who work across the state and people who work in Madison. Your participation will help us think about where we want to be in the future. Participation in this event is compensation work time.

Before we can decide the future of our department, we need to think about what is possible:  

  • Dream
  • How could we do things differently at DFM?
  • Think big
  • What are the possibilities for our future?
  • Expand our horizons
  • What works in other Departments of Family Medicine and Community Health?
  • Imagine the possibilities
