Get a Head Start on Residency at UTMB

UTMB requires that all new house staff (residents and fellows) complete 6 Institute for Healthcare Improvement  (IHI)Quality Improvement Modules 101-106 at the beginning of training. Applicants who hope to work at UTMB in the future as a resident or a fellow can complete these units as a medical student and the credit will transfer, so this requirement will not need to be repeated. Medical students are encouraged to complete all of the available units, and receive a certificate from IHI. Such by recognition by IHI would communicate  expertise, commitment, and interest in Quality Improvement (an ACGME residency program priority) of an applicant to potential future residency programs.
