Course Description

The Clinical Safety and Effectiveness course is a UT System wide course that concentrates on Quality Improvement and Patient Safety. It is modeled after Dr. Brent James´ Advanced Training Program at Intermountain Health Care, Utah. The course is eight days, eight hours/day over six months, offered two times per year. The curriculum emphasizes quality concepts and evidence-based medicine including patient safety, quality improvement, quality tools, teamwork, disclosure and crafting apologies, and return on investment. It is project based and demonstrates use of quality concepts and tools. Close attention is paid to the choice of the projects, making sure that they align with the strategic goals of the UT Health Science Center which include increasing 'active-learning strategies' and expanding programs to educate a diverse group of future healthcare academicians. As of June 2014 the Center has proudly conferred diplomas to over 200 participants including our newest colleagues in the Lower Rio Grande Valley. Graduates include faculty, administrators and staff from the School of Medicine, Dental School, and our hospital partners: University Hospital, CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Children's Hospital and the South Texas Veterans Health Care System.
