Certificate Program in Teaching Quality Improvement and Patient Safety

Interested faculty who wish to apply for the Association for American Medical Colleges’ Certificate Program in Teaching Quality Improvement and Patient Safety, scheduled for Thursday and Friday, Nov. 9-10, should do so by Sept. 25.

This faculty development program is designed to train clinical faculty on how to teach effectively quality improvement and patient safety concepts. This certificate faculty development program is offered by the AAMC and designed to assist academic medical centers in building strategies, infrastructure, and faculty prepared in leading quality improvement and patient safety projects with learners across the continuum. The program overview provides more details.

To support faculty participating in the Workshop, the Office of Continuing Medical Education, as part of our Maintenance of Certification Program, will be providing online resources and more including project consultation services with Dr. Aanand Naik and Dr. Diana Stewart as the training leads.

There is no charge for faculty and select residents to attend, although space is limited. Interested individuals are encouraged to apply early. You will be asked to create a User ID and Password, which will allow you to save your work and return. Please remember that unless you complete the application and hit the submit button, your application will not be communicated to us for review.
