Workshop: GME Quality Improvement/Patient Safety (QI/PS) Faculty Facilitator Coaching Program

September 3, 2021  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

This workshop is open to faculty and staff. Attendees are expected to attend all five sessions.

The Quality Department’s Coaching Program is for the GME QI Faculty Facilitator and is designed to allow more departments and divisions to take advantage of resources and tools available centrally through the Continuous Improvement division within Quality at Michigan Medicine.

By the end of the coaching program, faculty training leads will be:

  • Ready to implement a QI/PS program in their department or division.
  • Confident in teaching the GME course content.
  • Have the knowledge, tools and framework to accomplish their GME QI/PS Training Program goals.
  • Prepared to participate in AAMC Teaching for Quality (Te4Q) if the participant would like to further refine their QI/PS training program or to better understand educational theory.

The program consists both of group coaching sessions and individual touchpoints. Individual touchpoints (1 hour) will be coordinated with the improvement coach and individual faculty training lead.

Who should attend the coaching sessions?

The primary audience for this class are faculty who are responsible for teaching a resident and/or fellow QI/PS training program who are currently implementing this program in their department or division. We also welcome faculty who have not implemented a QI/PS training program, but will do so in the near future. Department staff supporting faculty with GME QI/PS are also encouraged to participate.

More information about the program is available on the Faculty Development website.
