Enroll Your Physicians Today in WHA Physician Quality Academy

March 10, 2017

Physicians are leading or playing significant roles in a variety of quality improvement efforts in WHA member hospitals and health systems. Knowledge about quality improvement tools and principles can increase the likelihood that those physicians will be more successful in and comfortable with their leadership role. 

Enrolling those physicians in WHA’s Physician Quality Academy will ensure they have access to the training and resources necessary to lead successful quality improvement initiatives. Participants will learn to design and conduct quality improvement projects utilizing proven improvement models; interpret data correctly; facilitate physician colleague engagement in quality improvement and measurement; and, discuss quality requirements, medical staff functions and their link to quality improvement.

The Academy will be offered twice in 2017, which will allow a physician to choose the cohort that works best for his/her schedule: Cohort #1 will be held May 10 and July 21; Cohort #2 will be September 29 and November 3. Attendance is limited to the first 100 registrants per cohort, so register your physicians today at www.cvent.com/d/wvq5nm. For more information contact Jennifer Frank at jfrank@wha.org or 608-274-1820.
