Physician Engagement in Quality & Safety
IHQI helps physicians gain a solid foundation in quality improvement through this one-day course that highlights the safety and quality challenges facing healthcare and physicians’ role as leaders in improvement work. The course emphasizes involving patients and families in quality and safety.
- Introduction to QI methods (including Lean, Six Sigma and the Model for Improvement)
- Leadership roles in QI and how to participate in and contribute to QI at UNC
- Disclosure of adverse events, patient safety and peer support
- Involving patients and families in quality and safety
PEQS is being offered virtually for the 2023-2024 academic year. We hope to return to an in-person setting at a later date.

“After many years of GME experience, I was fortunate enough to recently participate in the UNC PEQS program. I feel that I can best serve our residents/fellows when I am in the know about things. For the last few years, since coming to North Carolina, I have seen residents schedule and attend PEQS. I could not answer the many questions they asked me about the program and their need to attend. I honestly didn’t know what to expect from the course going into it and I was a bit apprehensive about being non-clinical. However, now that I have been able to see first-hand the great resources, speakers, and rich discussions regarding quality improvement, patient safety, and continued professional & personal development, I highly recommend this course to other coordinators!” A Medical Residency Program Coordinator
