In 2013, PEI conducted a needs assessment of resident safety and quality training in several New York City teaching hospitals and founded the QI Innovation Institute in 2014 in response to the identified gaps in resident training around quality and safety. One of the Institute’s first projects is to conduct a six-month pilot “Resident QI Clinic” on-site in two New York City teaching hospitals to assess its impact on participating resident physicians and to determine if such a solution can be scaled up to other institutions.
PEI is seeking an organization or an individual (physician and/or other healthcare professional) with experience in QI and patient safety to implement the six-month on-site clinics and to be available virtually (via email, telephone, or web conference) for individual follow-up assistance to residents. We intend to evaluate the efficacy of this approach in two hospitals within a six-month time frame and, if successful, expand this model to other hospitals with a need for QI learning and programming.

Applications should be no longer than 10 pages and emailed directly to CIR PEI program director Sandy Shea at: firstname.lastname@example.org with a cc: to email@example.com. The deadline is November 15, 2014 at midnight EST. Should you have questions about the preparation of your RFP, please contact Ms. Shea and Ms Fernandez at the above email addresses.
PEI is committed to providing resident physicians and faculty with learning opportunities to develop these important systems improvement skills. PEI also seeks to develop resident physician champions who can share what they have learned with their faculty and resident colleagues – and develop into published QI leaders after completing their training.
