Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University
The initiative at Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University establishes a comprehensive longitudinal core curriculum in patient safety, quality improvement, population health and team-based care for all medical students.
The curriculum includes completion of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement Open School Certificate Program, system-wide patient safety seminars, problem-based learning cases and new objective structured clinical examinations and simulation cases that incorporate delivery-system science principles.
As part of the implementation of the curriculum, Brody established its Teachers of Quality Academy to provide faculty development in the new competencies that were to be incorporated in the medical school curriculum.
