KNN Mobilizing Character Course

The Office of Faculty Affairs and Development (OFAD) is excited to present the KNN Mobilizing Character course, we developed in collaboration with Medical College of Wisconsin and Dell Medical School, The University of Texas at Austin!

OFAD works with the Kern National Network for Caring & Character in Medicine (KNN), a network of seven medical schools dedicated to advancing caring and character in medicine with the goal of promoting human flourishing.

Through six modules, this program—Mobilizing Character—will strengthen knowledge, resources and community around mobilizing character development within medical education. We’ll be running monthly sessions from February–June 2022 along with a final convening in September, covering topics from modeling excellence and community-building, to navigating challenges with grace.


View the event flyer with more details. Please feel free to reach out to ofad@med.wisc.edu with any questions. We hope you’ll be able to join us!
