All residents complete a quality improvement project during their residency training. Residents are given time spread over 18 months during their PGY1 and PGY2 years to complete this project. We encourage residents to use the Plan-Do-Study-Act cycle as they systematically review care delivery systems and outcomes. PGY2 residents present their projects at our Annual Clinical Scholars Day each spring.
