Surgical Collaborative of Wisconsin

The Surgical Collaborative of Wisconsin (SCW) is a surgeon-led practice change community. We aim to optimize quality, reduce costs, and promote the delivery of care that is safe, effective, equitable, and patient-centered.

Summer Member Meeting | July 18-19

SCW is hosting its Summer Meeting at the Red Crown Lodge in Arbor Vitae, WI. Join surgeons from across the state to discuss evidence-based quality improvement projects on breast cancer surgery, colorectal surgery, postoperative opioid prescribing, and pediatric surgery.

Free Opioid CME Credit
