Community Advisory Board members announced
The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) has named initial members to the community advisory boards that will serve the Central Wisconsin and Green Bay community medical education programs.
Each health system and academic institution partnering in the MCW Community Medical Education Program recommended up to two representatives from their respective organizations to serve on the community advisory board in their region. Fourteen representatives from each region have been identified to serve on the community advisory boards. Four to six MCW representatives also will serve on the boards, including ex-officio members.
Additional representatives from each community will be selected by the initial members of the community advisory boards through a nomination process. It is anticipated that additional volunteers to the boards will represent health care and educational affiliates of the program, as well as the broader community, including physician leaders, business, education institutions, government entities and/or civic organizations. Community and academic co-chairs will be selected in the coming months.
The community advisory boards in both Central Wisconsin and Green Bay will assist the Medical College’s Dean of the Medical School and Executive Vice President and the respective community campus deans (when appointed) with the development and implementation of the local medical education programs.
The community advisory boards will assist program leaders with the development of community relationships and infrastructure, student recruitment and retention, monitoring of achievement of program goals, and enhancement of program visibility and support. Members will be apprised by the community campus deans of programmatic, financial and philanthropic updates relevant to their efforts. Members of the community advisory boards and/or community faculty members also will serve on MCW faculty committees—such as the Curriculum and Evaluation Committee—to ensure comparability of curricula.
