Faculty, housestaff/fellow, and staff contributions in quality and patient safety are essential to the core mission of UW Medicine. In addition, the promotions process can account for your contributions in quality and safety. Use these pages as a resource as you select a project, define your aims and timelines, identify support, collect data, and disseminate your findings. As healthcare practice evolves, you can play a part in the systematic improvement in quality of care and patient outcomes. 

Are you planning or working on a quality improvement project that could benefit from housestaff involvement? Many residents and fellows are eager to become involved but may not know how to find the right faculty or project managers. Post your project on QI Match to connect with passionate trainees who can help you.
