Dates


Description

Welcome, and thank you for joining us for KCU Graduate Medical Education (GME) Grand Rounds.

The primary objective of medical and surgical residency programs nationally is to improve the care delivered to patients through GME.  Residents are expected to systematically analyze their practice experience and use QI methods to implement systems change.  The objectives of the KCU GME Grand Rounds are to improve the collective practice of medicine and delivery of health care at the institutional level, and how best to engage GME Faculty and Residents in QI.

Given the limited amount and short duration of time residents are expected to be involved in improvement activities, the level of their involvement continues to be debated. The overall goal of the KCU GME Grand Rounds is to help drive the continuous QI and participation of the resident’s involvement in quality improvement activities.
