Map and Directions

Health care needs a cadre of physician leaders who have the tools and knowledge to prevent patient harm, improve outcomes and rein in the unsustainable growth in costs. Yet while many medical students and residents have great enthusiasm for this type of work, they often complete their training without having developed the skills needed to become leaders who can fix flawed systems of care delivery.

This one-day event -- the third annual patient safety and quality summit of the ACMQ Student and Resident Section -- aims to introduce medical students, residents and fellows to the possibilities of integrating quality improvement and patient safety work into their clinical careers. Other clinicians and educators, such as residency program directors, will gain insights for how to incorporate safety and quality into training of physicians.

The theme of this year's event is "Integrating Quality into Medical Education and Clinical Practice." Topics to be covered include:

  • Tools to carry out quality improvement projects
  • How to integrate medical quality into clinical practice
  • The skill sets and tools required to lead this work
  • Career options for clinicians wishing to specialize in quality and safety
  • Opportunities for medical students and residents to develop their skills as quality improvement leaders
  • How residents around the country have carried out their own quality improvement projects
