Quality Improvement – FAQT

(Updated Sept 2018)

Curriculum Overview

Fellows will be assigned to teams longitudinally with one fellow from each PGY year assigned together. The 3rd year fellow for each team serves as the “team leader.” This fellow will be responsible for directing team activities, meeting deadlines for submission of materials, and presenting results at end of year event. Each group will identify a project or area of interest; alignment with one of the UF Health or Malcom Randall VAMC quality priorities is encouraged. Each group will present the results of their project at the end of the academic year. Projects will be judged on innovation, impact on care, methodology, and presentation. Fellows will be expected to complete three QI projects during their training, one per year. Fellows are encouraged to consider QI projects that could go through multiple iterations and be repeatedly improved each year.

To date, 32 projects and 39 cycles of improvement have been completed through the FAQT curriculum. The projects have received 9 awards on the local, state, and national levels including two finalists for the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology Choosing Wisely Award and a national finalist in the American College of Physicians Abstract Competition.
