Quality Improvement and Patient Safety (QIPS) Fellowship

The QIPS Fellowship at CMH is a one-year non-ACGME accredited junior faculty position designed to provide our residency graduates with clinical, academic, and administrative training in quality improvement, patient safety, and leadership development. This collaboration between our clinical and Quality Services departments provides an opportunity for early career physicians to become involved in medical education and hospital administration and learn the skills to lead changes in health care.

The fellowship includes, but is not limited to:

  • Leadership role to facilitate alignment with institutional QIPS initiatives, lead patient safety rounds with residents, and prepare for key areas of institutional CLER visits
  • Scholarship, through designing and presenting/publishing one clearly defined mentored longitudinal project with the goal of systematic improvements at CMH
  • Time as clinician-educator as inpatient hospitalist and/or in clinic
  • Opportunity to attend a regional or national QIPS conference
  • Participate in key CMH hospital committees, RCAs, and resident QIPS teaching and project mentorship
