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, sites.hospitalmedicine.org/qsea) responds to that demand by providing medical educators with the knowledge and tools to integrate quality improvement and safety concepts into their curricula.
Sponsored by the Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM) and the Alliance for Academic Internal Medicine (AAIM), QSEA 2016 is a two-and-a-half-day course designed as a faculty development program. This year, QSEA will be held at Tempe Mission Palms Hotel and Conference Center in Tempe, Ariz., from May 23 to 25.
Attendees will enjoy a hands-on, interactive learning environment with a 10-to-1 student-to-faculty ratio. Participants will develop a professional network and leave with a tool kit of educational resources and curricular tools for quality and safety education.
Think QSEA is for you? Make plans to attend now if you are:
- A program director or assistant program director interested in acquiring new curricular ideas to help meet the ACGME requirements, which require residency programs to integrate quality and safety in their curriculum
- A medical school leader or clerkship director developing quality and safety curricula for students
- A faculty member beginning a new role or expanding an existing role in quality and safety education
- A quality and safety leader who wishes to extend influence and effectiveness by learning strategies to teach and engage trainees
