The call for physician leaders who are skilled in quality improvement and patient safety is a rising one across the nation. The Healthcare Leadership in Quality Residency Track is one of the few programs in the country to offer a distinct pathway for residents aspiring to be leaders in health care quality, patient safety, or informatics. During this two year longitudinal pathway, which is embedded within Penn Medicine’s residency programs, residents participate in various sessions that provide them with knowledge in health care quality, measurement, patient safety, informatics, and health care management. Armed with this knowledge, they then join leadership teams and work with them to design and implement an improvement initiative in our health care system as part of Penn Medicine’s Blueprint for Quality and Patient Safety.
Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Committee
The purpose of this interprofessional committee is to guide the design and implementation of activities related to patient safety and quality within graduate medical education and the clinical learning environment at the University of Pennsylvania Health System (UPHS). We are interested in aligning the safety and quality priorities of the Department of Clinical Effectiveness and Quality Improvement (CEQI) for UPHS with those of the Office of Graduate Medical Education at UPHS to ensure that all our trainees are competent in the science and practice of patient safety and quality improvement.
