A formal quality improvement education curriculum for residents has been implemented and a variety of resident-run quality improvement projects are currently ongoing in both the ambulatory and inpatient arenas. This stems from our program's commitment to delivering state-of-the-art quality healthcare. Part of our mission is to help residents function in an interdisciplinary environment, working alongside nurses and other staff. As part of this curriculum, we promote on-line modules delivered through the Institute of Healthcare Improvement, an independent non-profit organization. Furthermore, the Internal Medicine Department hosts an annual UTMB Quality and Research Forum. Residents are able to present their quality improvement projects to benefit the rest of the campus community.
