Abstract

A unique quality improvement (QI) curriculum was implemented within the Division of General Internal Medicine to improve QI knowledge through multidisciplinary, team-based education, which also met the QI requirement for the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) and the Mayo Quality Fellows program. Participants completed up to 4 QI learning modules, including pretest and posttest assessments. A participant who successfully completed all 4 modules received certification as a Silver Quality Fellow and credit toward the quality requirement for ABIM MOC. Of 62 individuals invited to participate, 33 (53%) completed all 4 modules and corresponding pretests and posttests. Participants substantially improved knowledge in all 4 quality modules. Study group participants' pretest scores averaged 71.0%, and their posttest scores averaged 92.7%. Posttest scores of reference group participants compared favorably, averaging 89.2%. Initial assessments showed substantial knowledge improvements and successful implementation of staff-developed QI projects.
