NCPIQE will recruit three Orthopedic Surgeons as QI Fellows. The goal of the QI Fellows program is to demonstrate that involving physicians as Champions in Quality Improvement will improve the quality of care provided. Prospective Fellows should demonstrate interest in developing their skills in clinical quality improvement and be willing to commit to the necessary education and participation in Quality Improvement activities to enhance the quality of specialty medical care in North Carolina. Training costs will be paid by the NCMS Foundation, and physicians will be compensated on a predetermined per diem basis. Ideally, Surgical Fellows will bring their surgical teams to the training as well. Training expenses for surgical team members is available as well.
Funding for this project was provided by the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina Foundation. For more information, or if you would like to submit your name or the name of a colleague for consideration, please contact Amy Dunatov at firstname.lastname@example.org.
