The University of Michigan Medical School worked across multiple departments, engaging educational and QI experts, to establish multiple Te4Q teams and individual projects. Their Te4Q workshop saw five mentors and two AAMC faculty lead the Te4Q cohort in the development of their projects.


The School of Medicine and Dentistry at Rochester hosted over 30 participants in October. They worked across departments to develop projects in GME and CME, integrating quality into the education of residents and other clinical faculty.


LIJ School of Medicine at Hofstra University worked across multiple clinical sites to bring together a very successful Te4Q program. The 1.5 workshop, held in late September, will be followed by "Step Back Consultations" to provide Te4Q participants an opportunity to receive formative feedback on their educational projects.


Lead by our very own Karyn Baum, MD, the University of Minnesota Medical School had a very successful interprofessional Te4Q workshop on 9/10/14. The UMN Te4Q cohort will reconvene in February 2015 to explore their project development and receive formative feedback.

Case Western Reserve University completed the first official Te4Q workshop, with close to 30 participants from both medicine and nursing. The workshop was a remarkable success, as many improvements and updates were implemented at Case Western. Participants will continue to develop their educational projects with mentoring and coaching from local experts and AAMC faculty.


Te4Q has officially launched! With the continuing support of the Te4Q constituent committee and an extremely insightful pilot experience at KUMC, the Te4Q faculty development program is finally ready for implementation nationwide.


The 2013 AAMC Annual Meeting hosted a session entitled "Involving Your Learners In Clinical Quality". Participants were asked to document what they believe to be the key elements of experiential learning in quality improvement and patient safety. The Involving Your Learners In Clinical Quality Improvement  aggregated results are now available as a PDF. Improving and increasing the opportunities for experiential learning is a focus of Te4Q and the discussion provided great insight into the needs of constituents.
