Clinician Quality Academy

REGISTRATION FOR COHORT 3 IS NOW CLOSED! Contact us if you are interested in Cohort 4!

The Clinician Quality Academy is a professional development program delivered over an eight-month period. The aim is to provide participants with the capability to effectively lead quality and safety initiatives in the process of improving health care quality.

Participants attend four in-person residency sessions and work on a quality project within their organization or practice. Along the way they receive support through webinars, an assigned Improvement Advisor and expert Faculty.

The curriculum reflects the different roles and perspectives of practicing clinicians in BC, and it is delivered through a model that accommodates their clinical schedules.

The program is founded on the learning and experience of international organizations like the NHS Institute for Innovation & Improvement, Intermountain Healthcare’s Advanced Training Program, and our own Quality Academy.

BCPSQC has partnered with the Joint Clinical Committees (JCCs) — General Practice Services Committee, Shared Care Committee and Specialist Services Committee — as well as the UBC Division of Continuing Professional Development and the College of Family Physicians of Canada, in order to incorporate their perspective on the development and delivery of a program geared specifically to practicing clinicians.

Representatives from  these organizations will continue to provide ongoing expertise and insight on the evolving content and structure of the program as members of the Clinician Quality Academy’s Advisory Committee.
