Gundersen names new Director of Medical Education

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – Gundersen Health System has a new Director of Medical Education.

Dr. Greg Thompson, a pulmonary and critical care physician, has been with Gundersen for more than 20 years. Most recently he served as Chief Medical Officer.

In his new role, Thompson plans to increase medical education among his staff and the community.

"Asking the staff, the patients and the community: What do they need from us? How can we best serve their needs? That would be more my approach to find out,” Thompson said. “First gain that knowledge of what we need to do and then (work) with our staff to develop the best ways we can to distribute that knowledge."

Thompson said his first step is to learn more about the sections of medical education to see how he can effectively address the entire Gundersen system.

Former Director of Medical Education David Chestnut left Gundersen for a job at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn.
