In 2017, the leadership of the WSMA reviewed the current health care economic and medical practice environment, and the programs and priorities of the association. Out of this review, recommended organizational priorities for the coming three-year period were drafted. A strategic plan for 2018-20, based on these identified priorities, was approved by the WSMA board of trustees in the fall of 2017.
