“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
