DoM Hosts Second Annual QIPS Poster Session Held in Griffis Faculty Club

On January 28th, 2014, the Department of Medicine hosted the second annual QIPS Poster Session to share results of the many exciting projects conceived and led by DoM faculty and residents in the training program. Infrastructure for these projects is internally funded by the DoM, but the lion’s share of the credit goes to the projects' principal investigators who devoted enormous effort to this work.

Meet the QIPS Committee!

The QIPS Committee is implemented by Jennifer I. Lee, M.D. (center), Quality and Patient Safety Officer, Co-chair; Robert J. Kim, M.D. (far left), Co-chair; Tara Bishop, M.D. (2nd from right), Director of QI Operations; and Mary Elizabeth Kelser, Administrator (2nd from left); Peter Steel, M.D. (QIPS-PI).

Dr. Augustine M.K. Choi, Chairman of the DoM, as well as senior faculty members from the DoM visited the event, making their rounds of the posters and lending encouragement to the up-and-coming physician-scientists. Several Weill Cornell medical students who attended, said they found it to be "a great learning experience." Click here to view photos from the QIPS Poster Session.
