At April’s Society of General Internal Medicine (SGIM) national meeting in Washington, DC, second-year resident Dr. Ruth Fernandez Ruiz presented her Quality Improvement team’s project. The team developed a Resident Orientation Manual to improve competency and efficiency using the electronic medical record for their continuity clinic patients at the VA. Congratulations to Dr. Fernandez Ruiz (pictured here) and her team!
Dr. Krista Johnson also presented at SGIM’s national meeting on the Internal Medicine Residency’s ambulatory quality improvement curriculum. The presentation highlights the successes of utilizing the new X+Y block scheduling model to incorporate a longitudinal resident quality improvement curriculum through team-based quality projects. Congratulations to Dr. Johnson, Dr. Aparna Kamath, Dr. Carly Kuehn, and Dr. Ethan Kuperman, pictured here. One member of this team emphasized that Dr. Wendy Fiordelissi, who was unable to attend SGIM’s national meeting, also greatly contributed to the success of this curriculum. Congratulations to all on this successful QI project, as well!
