The 53rd Annual Winter Refresher Course for Family Medicine

March 2-3, 2023

The Winter Refresher Course (WRC) for Family Medicine is a regional/statewide conference sponsored by the Medical College of Wisconsin Department of Family and Community Medicine in collaboration with the Wisconsin Academy of Family Physicians. The course provides an evidence-based review of acute and chronic medical conditions frequently seen in primary care, updates in medication options and nutrition education, and a chance to network with professional colleagues across the state.

This program is designed for family physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and other primary care clinicians caring for patients of all ages and backgrounds.

After this program, attendees will be able to:

  • Apply current evidence-based preventive and chronic disease management guidelines to the provision of adult medicine, pediatrics, geriatrics and women’s health.
  • Discuss emerging recommendations for addressing sequelae of the COVID-19 epidemic (e.g., long-haul symptoms, trauma and loss).
  • Examine scientific evidence for prevention and management strategies of common conditions.
  • Discuss tools and best practices for managing opiate use disorder in the primary care setting.
