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.
The training courses are conducted by course facilitators, who provide the educational content of the course sessions, as well as by QI coaches, who lead breakout groups during the sessions (as assigned). Some QI coaches also provide personalized coaching to assigned trainees/course participants between course sessions, guiding them on their improvement projects in relation to the course assignments.
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 project teams, trainees/I-QIPS learners, or faculty involved in improvement-related activities being conducted within the College and/or affiliated institutions.
I-QIPS QI Coaches are selected via a formal application process. [Learn more...]
