Doctor Day 2024 is coming up quickly on January 23 in Madison. It’s early this year because it’s a busy time for lawmakers in session and therefore, important for physicians to band together and make sure our voices are heard while these decisions are being made.
As always, Doctor Day is a full day of speakers, panels, issue briefings and visits at the Capitol with your elected officials and staff. Thanks to our incredible sponsors, the day is free for medical students, residents and physicians. It includes breakfast, lunch and a happy hour to end the day with food and drinks. We’re at the Concourse Hotel this year (a little bit closer to the Capitol and surrounded by great parking) and the happy hour will return again to Madison’s on King Street.
Register here and join us in an invigorating day of advocacy on behalf of your patients and profession.

Connection to Care: How to Build the Power to Protect Your Patients and Your Practice
Joel Charles, MD, MPH
With rising threats to our practices and our patients' health, it is more important than ever for physicians to make their voices heard together. And yet too many physicians feel a lack of agency and isolation in the face of seemingly intractable problems. Using his highly successful organization as a case study, Dr. Charles will provide an overview of best practices for how physicians can turn their values into connection with colleagues, and that connection into power to protect their practices, patients, and communities
