COURSE FACILITATORS

The Institute for Continuing Professional Development in Quality Improvement and Patient Safety (I-QIPS) is comprised of leaders from across the educational and clinical enterprise, bringing with them a diverse set of experiences and backgrounds in QI and patient safety. This expertise is carried over into interactive training courses developed and offered by I-QIPS, strategically designed to enrich the hands-on learning experience that is provided to course participants. Training courses are conducted by a team of facilitators, comprised of Master Teachers, Faculty, and Instructors, as designated by I-QIPS.

Master Teachers

I-QIPS Master Teachers serve as subject matter experts, direct course content, mentor QI leaders, and lead the development of instructors within the I-QIPS.

Faculty

I-QIPS Faculty serve as subject matter experts, lead individual course sessions offered by the I-QIPS, and provide coaching as needed on QI projects.

Instructors

I-QIPS Instructors serve as subject matter experts, co-lead course sessions offered by the I-QIPS, and provide coaching on QI projects.

QI COACHES

I-QIPS QI Coaches provide assistance during training courses offered by the I-QIPS by leading breakout activities during course sessions, such as providing small-group coaching on improvement projects being conducted by the enrolled course participants. Additionally, QI Coaches may provide similar coaching to the course participants between in-person workshop sessions to provide any additional guidance needed to prepare them for their next scheduled session. 

As part of its initiative to train faculty, support innovation, and promote scholarship in quality improvement and patient safety, the I-QIPS seeks qualified candidates to serve as QI Coaches for faculty or trainees involved in improvement-related activities conducted across BCM-affiliated institutions. The team of QI Coaches is selected via a formal application process. For more information, visit the QI Coaches page.
