Using the Teaching for Quality (Te4Q) as a Vehicle To Design a GME PS/QI Core Curriculum

Description

Residents and fellows receive varying amounts of patient safety and quality improvement (PS/QI) lectures during their graduate medical education (GME) training at Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine (JCSOM). While some programs provide a formal lecture on PS/QI and require residents/fellows to participate in a quality improvement project, other programs provide very little formal instruction. As a result, resident/fellow knowledge of patient safety/quality improvement varies depending upon which program trains them. To address this inconsistency, the JCESOM Graduate Medical Education Committee (GMEC) has adopted a Teaching for Quality (TeQ4) Core Curriculum project recommendation. This Core Curriculum was result of a Te4Q joint effort of 7 Residency Directors and a representative from the Office of GME.
