“As Chief of Medicine at Ben Taub Hospital, Chair of the Internal Medicine Department, and Dean of Graduate Medical Education at Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) during the implementation of MedRAP, I came to appreciate the many benefits of such a program for any residency program or medical institution. During the 25 years of this program, I have also witnessed firsthand the benefits for resident morale and team building.
The Quality Improvement component was used to improve both education and patient care. With the introduction of the Core Competencies by ACGME, this program became essential to meeting the milestones expected for accreditation… This comprehensive and thoughtful book will be of valuable benefit for program directors, as well as for other institutional leaders and non–physician training programs. I highly recommend this excellent work.”
