Students—Quality Improvement Project

The RMED program requires all students to complete a quality improvement project. This is a requirement of the Family Medicine elective portion of the experience, and it fulfills some requirements for the Preventive Medicine Program. The project involves completion of a quality improvement project in the primary preceptor's practice that focuses on the prevention or management of chronic disease recommendations. In the past, students have created tools to help implement colorectal screening, smoking cessation, as well as mammography for noncompliant patients.
