ABOUT THE INSTITUTE

Established in 2017 with the support of Dr. Alicia Monroe, Provost and Senior Vice President of Academic and Faculty Affairs at BCM, the Institute for Continuing Professional Development in Quality Improvement and Patient Safety (I-QIPS) provides a home and focus for College-wide educational and training initiatives, resources, and recognition for BCM faculty and staff interested in expanding their knowledge, skills, and abilities in the science, application, and teaching of quality improvement and patient safety (QI/PS) to benefit all BCM learners across the educational continuum. With all efforts aligned with the College's clinical and educational missions and priorities for the purposes of improving outcomes, patient health, and value, the goals of the Institute are to ensure that faculty and staff are trained and proficient in the principles and practice of QI/PS; that some become expert educators; and that select experts advance to become masters or scholars who are also engaged in research and discovery.

Our team is comprised of leaders across the educational and clinical enterprise, and they bring with them a diverse set of experiences and backgrounds.

This website serves as a resource to provide up-to-date QI/PS educational offerings and tools for health care professionals, educators, and students, as well as to facilitate collaboration, development, discovery, application of new research solutions, frameworks, and changing initiatives designed to maximize quality improvement, patient safety, and the education of these topics.
