As a medical student stepping into the clinical setting with fresh eyes that veteran physicians entrenched in the day-to-day delivery of care no longer have, you may be able to spot changes that can be made to improve the quality of care patients receive and find ways to make the system more efficient for everyone.

An education module offered via the AMA Ed Hub™ helps medical students—and residents and physicians who may not have received training during their medical school years—better understand quality improvement (QI), how to measure it and make sustainable QI changes.

The AMA Ed Hub is an online platform that consolidates all the high-quality CME, maintenance of certification, and educational content you need—in one place—with activities relevant to you, automated credit tracking and reporting for some states and specialty boards.

The free online module, “Quality Improvement,” is one of six modules part of the Health Systems Science Learning Series. Another seven modules will be released as part of the series in early 2020.

How do you measure quality?

According to the module, these are four types of quality measures that provide a framework to understand and assess quality in health care.
