Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) is an essential component of our daily work at the College of Medicine. It is important that everyone is committed to the process of continually reviewing how we conduct every aspect of our educational, research and
clinical operations and strive to improve to be our very best for our students, our science and our patients.
During the preparation for our 2019 Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) accreditation review, we began a more formal CQI process. The information found here provides an excellent overview of all elements of our college’s operation, how
we are monitoring each area and using data-driven analysis to improve. It not only guides us in our ongoing CQI efforts, but also leads us through our work in adapting to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic while also best preparing us for our next
LCME accreditation in 2027.
Thank you for recognizing the importance of this process, your continued commitment to it and your involvement in these efforts.
