UTMB Adopts New Requirement for House Staff

Beginning July 1, 2014, the UTMB Graduate Medical Education Committee (GMEC) approved a requirement for all UTMB House Staff related to patient safety and quality improvement. All house staff will have two years to complete 7 PS modules from the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) Curriculum. Medical students who are planning to take residency at UTMB are encouraged to complete this assignment before starting their residency. Those failing to complete this requirement by the deadline will be removed from clinical services. To register with the IHI, please to https://www.ihi.org/_layouts/ihi/userregistration/userregistration.aspx  Since this activity is becoming so important, medical students may want to complete all IHI PS modules to demonstrate their commitment to and proficiency in patient safety to prospective residency programs.
