A Small Shop with a Big Goal: Building a Validated, Institutional Quality Improvement Curriculum Experience for 1st Year Residents at a Large Teaching Hospital

Description

The University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics GME Curriculum Committee developed an institutional quality and process improvement curriculum module for its PG1 residents. This poster describes the curriculum, which is designed to meet the growing need for quality improvement (QI) and patient safety (PS) instruction in an effort to improve the quality of care while also taking the burden off of other resource-thin programs. The curriculum uses a web-based resident management system to create and deliver the module, allowing residents to complete at their own pace.
