The demand for training in healthcare quality and patient safety for both medical students and residents has never been higher. The Quality and Safety Educators Academy (QSEA) responds to that demand by providing medical educators with the knowledge and tools to integrate quality improvement and safety concepts into their curricula.
Who Should Attend?
- Program directors or assistant program directors interested in acquiring new curricular ideas to help them meet the ACGME requirements, which require residency programs to integrate quality and safety into their curriculum
- Medical school leaders or clerkship directors developing quality and safety curricula for students
- Faculty who are beginning a new role or expanding an existing role in quality and safety education
- Quality and safety leaders who wish to extend their influence and effectiveness by learning strategies to teach and engage trainees
During the Academy You Can Expect:
- To enhance your knowledge and skills in the field of quality and safety and curriculum development
- A hands-on interactive learning environment with a 10:1 student-to-faculty ratio including facilitated large group sessions, small group exercises, and panel discussions
- To be placed in mentor groups at the beginning of the conference in order to develop a small professional network within a larger network of peers
- All sessions to be led by experienced physicians known for their ability to practice and teach quality improvement and patient safety, mentor junior faculty, and guide educators in curriculum development
- Opportunities to network with the conference faculty who will remain onsite throughout the entire academy
