Posted on Nov 14, 2018 by Department of Veterans Affairs
The Chief Resident for Quality and Safety will take part in an individually designed curriculum created with materials and mentors from the VA nationally, the VA locally, and the Patient Safety and Quality Program (PS&Q) at Washington University. Concurrent or consecutive involvement in the PS&Q fellowship at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University may be negotiated for appropriate candidates. In turn, the CRQS will develop a patient safety curriculum appropriate for resident physicians, engage in directing that curriculum, and participate in or direct quality improvement projects at the VA. The CRQS will have very limited clinical responsibilities and no patient care administrative responsibilities. This program is intended to develop the future leaders in system redesign and scholars in quality and patient safety.

The position will report to the Chief, Medical Service. Office and clerical support will be provided. Salary will be commensurate with PGY-level. Applicants will be considered from St. Louis University, Washington University, and external residency programs.
