Clinical Teaching Skills Roadshows

Clinical Teaching Skills Roadshows

Faculty Development has collaborated with a cadre of skilled faculty from different departments to be trained to deliver the following clinical teaching workshops in your department. As a hosting department, you will simply need to identify a departmental contact and a date and space for the presentation. Faculty Development will then coordinate with their experienced faculty on availability to facilitate for your group. If you are interested in hosting one of the Faculty Development Clinical Teaching Roadshows listed below, please contact Laura Denton at


Offerings Include:

Teaching Quality Improvement and Patient Safety in the Context of Everyday Clinical Work

This workshop will help faculty teach and model basic Quality Improvement and Patient Safety (QI/PS) principles to identify and solve problems in everyday clinical work. Faculty are the most important teachers in this environment and having faculty teach basic problem identification and solving is increasingly important as national and academic priorities emphasize improving the safety, quality, and efficiency of health care.

At the completion of this workshop, participants should be able to:

  • Identify simple problems to improve quality and safety in everyday work and in the work lives of clinical trainees.
  • Explain some key, basic principles in systematic problem solving relevant to everyday clinical work.
  • Enable clinical trainees to identify and address simple QI/PS issues in the everyday clinical setting.

Target audience: Individuals familiar with basic QI/PS principles who want to practice teaching/mentoring simple problem solving approaches in everyday clinical work.
