Quality and Safety Program


The Department of Medicine (DOM) Quality and Safety Program (QSP) was created in July 2011 to provide a management structure to oversee quality and safety activities for the department. Michael Ho, MD, PhD serves as Vice Chair for Quality in the DOM. The DOM QSP strives to advance the quality of care delivered by DOM providers to our patients through a number of integrated programs.


Our Mission

  • To provide DOM faculty and trainees with the skills and tools necessary to produce optimal outcomes for our patients.
  • To identify synergies and integrate activities across the DOM as a means to augment the impact of this work, reduce redundancy, and strengthen the shared mission of the Department’s faculty and trainees.
  • To foster an atmosphere in which quality improvement is valued as an essential component of the academic medical enterprise.
