WISAM Open Exchange

The Wisconsin Society of Addiction Medicine hosts a monthly "Open Exchange" virtual series for discussion on issues affecting one's practice, patient care or the overall addiction medicine landscape. The teleconference calls serve as an open forum for members and non-members alike to informally interact with WISAM leaders.

Non-member clinicians may participate by signing up to receive call notifications. Let us know if you have a topic for future discussion!
