|Student & Resident|
The Student, Resident & Fellows (SRF) section of the College was launched in February 2007 and is rapidly growing. We encourage all graduate students and physicians-in-training with an interest in medical quality issues to sign-up, learn more and help improve our healthcare system. The College feels strongly that the future of the specialty lies with graduate students and physicians-in-training who are dedicated to a better healthcare system, and we are therefore committed to making membership affordable and rewarding.
If you have any comments or questions please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SRF Section Goals
How to Start an ACMQ Chapter Toolkit
The College's Student, Resident & Fellows section has developed and published "How to Start an ACMQ Chapter Toolkit."
College members are encouraged to use this toolkit as a resource, reach out to other like-minded colleagues, and help establish ACMQ chapters in a variety of settings. While it is envisioned that most of the initial ACMQ chapters will be founded at academic health centers and other health professions training sites, the College leadership understands and appreciates that the chapter development process will be an iterative one and will continually undergo refinement as chapters are founded and mature.
We look forward to helping you establish your chapter and to seeing you and your chapter members at the next Medical Quality conference in Washington, DC.
Quality Training to Improve Performance (QTIP) column in the American Journal of Medical Quality
The American Journal of Medical Quality recognizes that opportunities to learn about the perspectives of professionals in training are limited. To expand learning opportunities for its readership, AJMQ and the ACMQ Student and Resident Section launched a column in 2013 dedicated to publishing student work on the topic of performance improvement. Through collaboration with the College articles are solicited in June and July each year for the column, "Quality Training to Improve Performance (Q-TIP)."
Questions regarding "Quality Training to Improve Performance (Q-TIP)" or to submit articles may be directed to Dr. Pelegano at email@example.com.
The Journal is a peer-reviewed bi-monthly journal for those practicing, conducting research, and teaching in the field of clinical quality improvement. AJMQ publishes research studies, evaluations of the delivery and management of health care, and reports on changes in the field of medical quality, utilization, and risk management. Each issue provides information on the latest innovations in quality, editorial commentary on issues of importance in the field, and pragmatic suggestions to improve practice.
