WHA and RWHC Partner to Offer WI Quality Residency Program

February 27, 2020

The quality staff at WHA and the Rural Wisconsin Health Cooperative (RWHC) have announced the next cohort of the Wisconsin Quality Residency Program. First launched in 2014, the program is designed to engage new and novice hospital quality improvement leaders in a 12-month track of education, leadership training and networking – all critical for success in the first two years on the job. 

The program includes in-person learning modules in foundational topics, including regulatory and accreditation requirements, quality improvement concepts, and using good data for analysis and decision-making. The modules are supplemented by coach calls, a dedicated email list service and access to veteran quality leaders for support. 

While the intended participants are those in their first two years in a quality leadership role, there are also experienced leaders who may wish to attend a module or two for a topic “refresh.”  The program will accommodate guests on a first-come, first-served registration process.

The re-launch of the Wisconsin Quality Residency Program comes at an opportune time. According to WHA data, there are more than 22 new hospital quality leaders in Wisconsin hospitals. Further, this is a valuable opportunity for succession planning or training new leaders for anticipated vacancies. 

See the program summary for more information and to register.
