Mini Med School

The University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in Madison invites you to a series of Mini Med School sessions. Learn what you can do - and what we are discovering - to ensure better health for everybody.


The series will be led by our Mini Med School "deans":

June 4, 2015: Partnering with Patients in Health Care

Health Sciences Learning Center | Program: 6:30-8pm, reception with presenters: 8-9pm


People from all walks of life face challenges within the U.S. health care system. The Center for Patient Partnerships has developed and tested bold, innovative strategies to help patients and health professionals navigate that system, and to make the system as a whole more responsive to patients’ needs.


This session will include simple tools for self-advocacy, as well as examples of how patients are making a difference at UW-Madison and in our community and how we can learn from patients’ experiences to make health care better.
