Education Tracks in Internal Medicine Residency Program

Medical Education Track

The Medical Education track is led by Rachel Bonnema M.D., M.S. It was created in conjunction with a dedicated group of residents interested in developing their Clinician Educator skills and joining forces to better our institution's education. It encompasses monthly meetings to cover a core curriculum and access to opportunities within undergraduate and graduate medical education. We will connect you with outstanding faculty in your field or area of interest and arrange biannual meetings with Dr. Bonnema to help you reach your own individual goals and complete a capstone project before the end of residency.

Quality Improvement Track

The quality improvement track provides expert mentorship and experiential training in quality improvement through resident-led flagship quality improvement projects and twice-yearly methodology didactic workshops. Its goal is to prepare residents for a career in patient safety and quality improvement. The track is overseen by the chief resident for research/quality improvement and Dr. William Gary Reed, the associate dean for Quality, Safety, and Outcomes Education. It is available to residents from their PGY2 year and beyond.
