The Society of Hospital Medicine’s Center for Quality Improvement offers a unique opportunity for hospitalists to learn about quality improvement successes their colleagues are realizing at their home institutions. SHM’s Center for Quality Improvement will host a panel of two quality improvement enthusiasts to present about their quality improvement projects.

We will provide ample time to allow participants to ask questions. This webinar is open to anyone who wishes to join!
