Workshop: AAMC’s certificate in teaching quality improvement and patient safety

August 16, 2019  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

The goal of AAMC’s ‘Teaching for Quality’ initiative is to ensure that every medical school and teaching hospital in the U.S. has access to faculty who are ready, able and willing to engage in and lead education in quality improvement, patient safety and the reduction of excess health care costs.

The U-M Medical School’s specific aim is to develop faculty to create and implement these educational activities for medical students, residents and fellows, clinicians and other personnel in Michigan Medicine.

Target audience. The workshop is designed for faculty and other Michigan Medicine personnel who:

  • Already have a basic knowledge of and experience with Quality Science (quality improvement and patient safety – QI/PS).*
  • Want to develop skills and abilities to teach this information and its application to others.
  • Are planning a QI/PS educational activity that they will develop during the workshop.  (Two or more individuals may work together on an educational activity.)
