The National Workshop on Quality for Medical Education, to be held Nov. 9 in Baltimore, Md., is an opportunity for medical students, residents and fellows to learn how they can integrate patient safety and quality improvement into their clinical careers. Hear from national experts about the technical and leadership skills needed to pursue these career paths, as well as from residents who have led successful safety and quality improvement projects. Health care needs a cadre of physician leaders who have the tools and knowledge to prevent patient harm, improve outcomes and rein in the unsustainable growth in health care costs. Yet while many students and early-career physicians have great enthusiasm for this type of work, they often complete their training without having received any structured training and developed the skills in quality needed to become leaders who can fix flawed systems of care delivery. This conference aims to help participants learn about the options and resources for closing that gap so that they can be change agents in their organizations.
