- About the Conference
The Winter Refresher Course (WRC) for Family Medicine is a regional conference presented in the metropolitan area of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Typically attracting more than 200 family practitioners, FP physician assistants, FP nurse practitioners and FP residents, the WRC is sponsored by the Department of Family and Community Medicine, Medical College of Wisconsin.
The conference is 2.5 days in duration with 16-18 prescribed AAFP CME credit hours. The unique format of this conference provides three topics each hour from which the learner may choose. Topics include updates, new information, and workshops all clinically based. The WRC staff also make efforts to bring new technologies in learning to the conference and encourage presenters to use PowerPoint and Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM) in their presentations. Planners of the WRC make every effort to avoid clinical presentations that are sponsored by pharmaceutical companies. Standards of disclosure of the Accreditation Counsel for Continuing Medical Education are emphasized.
The Medical College of Wisconsin, Department of Family & Community Medicine appreciates the support provided by The Wisconsin Academy of Family Physicians and our corporate exhibitors.
