AAMC Meeting Call for Abstracts: Integrating Quality Means Rethinking Education

The AAMC has launched a new effort to integrate quality across the continuum of education from undergraduate medical education through graduate medical education to continuing medical education. The initiative was launch last year with an initial meeting about integrating quality, which was held last June in Chicago. The goal is to find examples of quality related practices in undergraduate, graduate or continuing education, to determine best practices, and to determine the causes of variation in educational endeavors with the goal of better addressing quality in medical education curricula. "Frequently , the medical school, the teaching hospital and the clinical practices were each focusing on different topics that were individually good but they lack the continuity that foster learning and behavioral change," said David Longnecker, MD, AAMC Director of Health Care Fairs. "The idea was to help our members move forward by implementing a coordinated experience across the spectrum of medical education." The next meeting is going to be June 3-4, 2010 at the Chicago Marriott O'Hare Hotel. The title of this meeting is Integrating Quality: linking clinical and educational excellence. The AAMC is soliciting abstracts for panels and posters on the following themes and sample topic areas. Abstracts on other relevant areas will also be considered for the poster discussion sessions. 1. Building an Integrated Approach to Quality in Academic Medical Centers · How to develop an organizational strategic approach to quality (implications for planning, budgeting, staffing/resources, etc.) · Techniques for building a culture of quality/safety · Adoption of QI strategies, such as Lean or Six Sigma, across the organization Stories continue on page 5.
