Knowledge of basic principles of quality improvement does not necessarily lead to successful local projects, implementation beyond the local environment, or academic productivity. EQUIP provides a deeper dive into quality improvement (QI) methodologies to better prepare participants to maximize their project’s impact and receive academic recognition for their work.

The EQUIP program consists days of 6 full-day virtual sessions (July 7-9, 2021 and May 9-11, 2022) and 90-minute webinars every month from September to April. Upon completion of the program, participants will be granted an academic certificate from the University of Toronto.

Who should take EQUIP?

  • Academic faculty seeking to more meaningfully integrate QI into their clinical work or scholarly activities.
  • Faculty members who have a role in operational QI work for their department or hospital and would like to develop advanced skills to increase their likelihood of success.
  • Senior trainees wanting to make QI an academic career focus.
