About the Summit

The Michigan Summit on Quality Improvement, Patient Safety & Wellness is a statewide collaboration between the Michigan Health and Hospital Association (MHA), the Michigan Peer Review Organization (MPRO), and the Southeast Michigan Center for Medical Education (SEMCME).  In the fourth year of the Summit, we have expanded the program.  Qualiity Improvement poster presentations by residents and fellows from across the state of Michigan continue to be a focus, and now we have added a session with oral presentations for the top submitted abstracts.  As in past years, we have a dynamic keynote speaker, will continue and will offer an expanded course listing:

  • Introductory QI Bootcamp
  • Advanced QI Bootcamp
  • QI Bootcamp for Program Coordinators
  • Wellness Bootcamp (new course for 2019)


Quality Improvement involves systematic and continuous actions that lead to measurable improvement in health care services and the well-being of targeted patient populations. To make improvements, organizations need to understand their own delivery system and key processes. The Michigan Summit on Quality Improvement, Patient Safety & Wellness is designed to focus on the initial steps of quality improvement by highlighting the importance of residents and fellows in the process of identifying areas of improvement. This Summit further aids health care systems by providing the tools to effectively study the targeted areas of improvement.  Wellness addresses the well-being of the healthcare delivery team:  from residents, fellows, attending physicians, physician assistants, nurses, aides, and graduate medical education program directors.  The goal is to help caregivers establish work-life balance so that they can be effective caregivers for their patients.

  • Resident and Fellow Poster Presentations on Quality Improvement, Patient Safety, and Wellness projects
  • Oral Presentations of top Resident and Fellow projects
  • Keynote Address
