Physician Liaisons

The UW Health Physician Liaison Program has had a long history of working with physicians who refer patients to UW Health. In the 2008 Referring Physician Satisfaction Survey, regional physicians were asked specifically about their interaction with the UW Health physician liaisons. The physicians consistently rated their satisfaction with the liaison program as a highly valued effective service.


The following is a list of services and information that the liaisons provide to the regional physicians and their staff:

  • Continuing Medical Education opportunities
  • UW Health physician directories
  • Information on new technologies and services available at UW Health
  • Assistance in making referrals to UW specialists
  • New physician announcements
  • Patient education
  • One-on-one meetings with UW Health physicians

Please do not hesitate to contact the Physician Liaison Office directly at (608) 890-5793 or email us.
