Bridging UME and GME: Serving learners through better communication

3–4 p.m. Central time
Monday, Oct. 7

The transition from undergraduate medical education (UME) to graduate medical education (GME) has become increasingly complicated. Residency program directors often rely on a single standardized metric for screening and cite lack of complete and transparent information from medical schools. The recent adoption of pass/fail grading by many schools has further compounded the problem. This webinar will outline current challenges facing the transition from UME to GME and identify ways to increase the flow of data and promote learning.

Teaching high-value care: Perspectives from the U.S. and South Africa

1–2 p.m. Central time; 8–9 p.m. South Africa Standard Time
Monday, Oct. 14

As health care delivery continues to evolve and education changes along with it, medical students will enter a system that is ever more focused on how to deliver the highest quality care as efficiently as possible. To achieve high-value care requires an awareness of health systems science, including population health, health equity, informatics and systems thinking. In the U.S., government health coverage is increasingly moving toward value-based reimbursement. In South Africa, the transition to National Health Insurance will gradually shift toward payments based on capitation and away from fee-for-service. Join this webinar to learn more about how value is changing the way we teach medical students today and what it will mean for them tomorrow.

A MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Dear Wolf River Conservancy friends,

In a few days the month of September will be behind us…and the advent of the fall season means that our premier fundraising event, the Greenway Soirče, is just around the corner. We anticipate a sell-out crowd for this year’s event, just as we had last year. If you would like to attend the 2019 Greenway Soirče, please visit this link to purchase your tickets now!

International Paper is the Presenting Sponsor for this year’s event.  As a committed partner and benefactor, International Paper has shown its support for the Wolf River Conservancy in numerous ways over the years.

Volunteers from International Paper have participated in several service projects this year including the Annual Tree Planting, cleanups along segments of the Wolf River Greenway trail, and cleanup paddle trips on the Wolf River.

International Paper has also provided funding to purchase several canoes and two large river rafts which have been used on the Wolf River and nearby lakes during education programs. We hope to deploy them in the future on the lake at Epping Way.  Needless to say, International Paper is an exemplary corporate citizen and the Wolf River Conservancy appreciates its support!  

We wish to express our sincere gratitude to ALL of the sponsors of our Greenway Soirče event.  To see a complete listing, please visit this link.  We are fortunate to receive such generous community-wide backing from individual donors, foundations, and corporations.  We understand that we must continue to earn this support each day. 

Thank you to everyone who continues to believe in and support the work of the Wolf River Conservancy! We hope to see you all at the Greenway Soirče on Saturday, November 9th.

Keith Cole
Executive Director
