This will be reflected in our approach to health care disparities which will go beyond the care of the uninsured and work towards equal outcomes for all persons. –This will be measured in our health disparity research and implementation and our educations focus on cultural competence in our program.

Our residents will graduate committed to this process so that they can continue to improve patients care throughout their career. –It will be measurable by having over 50% of the QI projects developed by our residents adopted by the health care system and will save the academic hospital system over 1 million dollars a year.
