Improve the health of the people of Wisconsin by supporting and strengthening physicians' ability to practice high-quality patient care in a changing environment.

Operation: Education

The Foundation offers opportunities for practicing and retired physicians to share their knowledge and experience with tomorrow’s physicians and help shape a student’s career path. One such opportunity is Operation: Education.

Operation: Education offers students the opportunity to learn more about the variety of medical specialties and general practice options available to them. It also encourages students to practice in Wisconsin. During this casual event held annually at both Wisconsin medical schools, students interact with a variety of medical specialists and general practice physicians in small groups, allowing them to ask practical questions about specialties they may be considering.

Students aren’t the only participants who benefit. Operation: Education offers physicians a rewarding volunteer opportunity. If you would like to participate in this fun and meaningful program by sharing information about your chosen specialty with medical students, please e-mail Henry Thompson or call 608.442.3756.

In the 2017-2018 academic year, Operation: Education events were held on November 14, 2017 at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health and January 16, 2018 at the Medical College of Wisconsin’s Milwaukee campus.
