From your DIO:  Successful Completion of the AiAMC Well-Being National Initiative

From your DIO: Successful Completion of the AiAMC Well-Being National Initiative

The WSU Graduate Medical Education Office, in partnership with the Ascension Providence Rochester Hospital, completed the 18-month long Alliance of Independent Academic Medical Centers (AiAMC) National Initiative VI on Stimulating a Culture of Well-Being in the Clinical Learning Environment.  In response to hospitals’ interest in fostering swifter improvements in patient care, and recognizing that residents have not generally been visible in safety and quality efforts, in 2007 the AiAMC launched the National Initiatives (Ni).  These QI campaigns are led by residents and GME leadership in AiAMC-member institutions who collaborate in multidisciplinary teams to address pressing issues in areas such as community health, health equity, and the clinical learning environment.  At the concluding meeting of the Ni VI in Tucson, AZ in April, Director of GME Education Dr. Brent Stansfield and I (pictured above, middle and left) presented our research on “Momentum of Resident Wellness:  How Institutional, Program, and Resident Leadership Build a Culture of Wellness.”  Dr. Danielle Fabry (PGY-3, pictured above right), was one of the co-authors of a poster on “Establishment of a Program Wellness Committee: Faculty, Resident Partnership for Addressing Wellness Issues.”
