Science of Quality Improvement
To increase competency in Practice-Based Learning and Systems-Based Practice through the acquisition of knowledge and skills in the science of quality improvement
Quality Improvement is a critical component of our core curriculum. Our quality improvement team has developed a comprehensive curriculum that centers on quality improvement and patient safety. The curriculum is a balance between didactic, knowledge and skill building. Interns first learn the basics of QI, team building, and change management. As residents progress, they apply the concepts to a quality improvement project and present that project prior to graduation.
Our goal is to prepare physicians to be leaders in changing and developing the course of healthcare.
