SIU GME Quality Improvement Poster Competition
The SIU Graduate Medical Education Committee was proud to present the 4th Annual SIU SOM Quality Improvement Poster Symposium and Competition. The 2019-2020 SIU QI: Poster Symposium and Competition originally scheduled for April 8, 2020, was held via virtual judging this year. The purpose of this event is to recognize the quality improvement projects that are being done by SIU SOM residents and fellows. Monetary awards are given for the top three Quality Improvement projects submitted for consideration:
First place = $250
Second place = $150
Third place = $100
An additional "Innovation Award", in the amount of $150, 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.
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 healthcare delivery. Eligible submissions were reviewed and judged by a panel of SIU SOM faculty and hospital administrators that possess expertise in and are passionate about quality improvement.
