Description of CME Course

Medical residents are often the eyes and ears that witness the deficiencies in the systems that provide care. Do they have the knowledge, skills, and time to improve those systems in your organization? This suite of one-lesson courses provides a step-by-step guide to embedding quality and safety into your residency training. With education about the Clinical Learning Environment Review (CLER) program, practical examples of successful programs, and an experiential learning opportunity, these courses will help you equip the next generation of physicians with skills to improve health care.

The IHI Open School offers a range of online courses created by world-renowned faculty in improvement capability, patient safety, triple aim for populations, person- and family-centered care, leadership, and quality, cost, and value. Each course takes approximately 1 to 2 hours to complete and consists of three to five lessons that end with assessments.

Diplomate Engagement

Learners must complete the course and achieve a passing score of 75% on each post-lesson assessment to receive a certificate of completion.
