Mount Carmel’s Internal Medicine Residency Program has earned a reputation for innovation. In fact, many of our residents have made conference presentations on their work and published their research findings in a variety of esteemed medical journals. To make sure that innovative thinking and action continue, we’re always exploring and implementing quality improvement projects, and encourage our residents to take an active part in those conversations and opportunities.

Quality Improvement Projects

Our quality Improvement projects are system-wide and often focus on increasing patient satisfaction, reducing costs and improving efficiency. We encourage all our residents to be diagnostic practitioners in helping us to address these issues. In fact, we set aside designated conference time to brainstorm, plan, and execute individual and team initiatives. We also engage a full-time statistician to help mark our progress.
