Life is Complicated Right Now. We're Here to Make It Simpler.

  • Virtual general sessions, including question and answer sessions, to help clinical and academic practices transform to achieve the quadruple aim
  • Engaging online sessions, along with some question and answer sessions, where you’ll hear about new strategies to create interprofessional, high-functioning teams that improve efficiency and provide better patient care
  • Virtual opportunities that provide creative ways for you to build network of health care professionals committed to continuous practice improvement and innovation
  • Opportunities to access programming that helps residents and residency programs meet ACGME requirements for quality improvement
