        37th Door County Summer Institute
        July 22 - August 9, 2024

        We have increased our educational offerings by scheduling more two-day sessions. We hope this year’s workshops will encourage you to return to Door County and assist you in your ongoing professional development while providing an opportunity to recharge and reinvigorate yourself. We reserve the right to limit enrollment depending upon pandemic status and available room size. 

        This year is predicted to be a major one when the number of solar flares approach a peak in their 11-year cycle with more of the aurora borealis visible as far south as Door County (such as the one in the cover photo captured just last September). With a bit of luck, perhaps you might view one while attending the Summer Institute. We hope you can join us.

        Institute Director and Founder

        Professor of Psychiatry and the Institute for Health and Society (Bioethics and Medical Humanities)
