WCSI is hosting our Third Annual Workers' Compensation College May 11th - 13th, 2020 at The Chula Vista Resort in Wisconsin Dells. We welcome you to join us in this opportunity for learning, networking and fun in a great Wisconsin vacation venue.

Attendees at the College will follow the fictitious worker's compensation claims of Gomer Pyle v. Wally's Service Station and Barney Fife v. County of Mayberry from alleged injury to mock hearing.


The College is a two-day event, with instruction beginning Tuesday morning, May 12, and ending Wednesday afternoon, May 13. Attendees will follow the fictitious workers' compensation claims of Gomer (knee and shoulder) and Barney (back and psyche) from injury to mock hearing. The program will include discussion sessions, mock examinations and cross-examinations of medical, psychological and vocational experts, and a panel discussion on settlements. It will culminate with a two-hour mock worker's compensation hearing. The faculty includes experienced attorneys, doctors, psychologists, vocational consultants and administrative law judges.

Application for continuing education credits for human resource, insurance claims and legal professionals has been made.
