The SIU Graduate Medical Education Committee is proud to present the SIU SOM Quality Improvement Poster Symposium and Competition. This event will publicly recognize the quality improvement projects that are being done by SIU SOM residents and fellows. Monetary awards will be given for the top three Quality Improvement projects submitted for consideration:

  • First place = $250
  • Second place = $150
  • Third place = $100

An additional "Innovation Award," may be given for the project that most demonstrates "out of the box thinking" or creative approach to successfully implement innovative quality improvement with demonstrated outcomes.

Innovation Award = $150

To be eligible for consideration, submitted projects must show initiative and commitment applied to improving systems and processes that directly and indirectly improve patient safety and quality of health care delivery.

The competition is open to any SIU SOM resident/fellow, who is a current trainee at the time of their submission. All submissions will be reviewed and judged by a panel of SIU SOM faculty and hospital administrators that possess expertise in and are passionate about quality improvement.

Submissions will be accepted 2-3 months prior to the session. Information and link will be provided.

Judging criteria will be based on Revised Standards for Quality Improvement Reporting Excellence (SQUIRE) guidelines.
