How can we improve the quality or reduce the cost of care? You see opportunities every day and it is your time to act! All Residents and Fellows are invited to submit your individual or group idea(s). Three winners will win a $2500 cash prize, and be eligible for an additional $2500 GRAND prize, awared at House Staff Quality and Safety Day. The Deadline is usually in early October.
Once the three winning projects are selected, the residents/fellows will work with the competition co-chairs (Drs. Brown, Gerkin and Mallin) from October – April. In May, the three winners along with a “wild card” winner that is selected from our call for abstracts in February, will present at the Fourth Annual Quality and Safety Day. Please note that there is a poster showcase of the abstracts submitted that is held the morning of the House Staff Quality and Safety Day. Both of these events are held at BUMCP and are open solely to our house staff.
