About the Summit

The Michigan Summit on Quality Improvement & Patient Safety is a statewide collaboration between the Michigan Association for Medical Education (MAME), Southeast Michigan Center for Medical Education (SEMCME), the Michigan Health and Hospital Association (MHA), and the Michigan Peer Review Organization.  In the third year of the Summit, we have revised our program.  Quality improvement poster presentations by residents and fellows from across the state of Michigan continue to be a focus, but we have included a keynote speaker, added an Advanced QI Bootcamp in addition to the Introductory QI Bootcamp, and added a session specifically designed for Program Coordinators and other professionals interested in quality improvement and patient safety.

Quality Improvement (QI) 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 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.

The Michigan Summit on Quality Improvement and Patient Safety includes:

  • The morning includes the QI Bootcamp, Advanced QI Bootcamp, and Bootcamp for Program Coordinators
  • Networking Luncheon; vendors on display who provide sponsorship for the Summit
  • Resident and Fellow Poster Presentations on Quality Improvement projects
  • Keynote Address
  • Awards ceremony
