“Completing EQUIP has helped me tremendously in my career. It strengthened my quality improvement knowledge and made me more confident to lead and mentor quality improvement projects in an academic environment. EQUIP gave me the skills and confidence I needed to continue to work in the area of quality improvement. As a direct result of EQUIP I am now the Medical Director, Quality and Patient Safety at my academic institution, and couldn’t be happier.
– Dr. Adina Weinerman, 2018 EQUIP graduate, general internist and Medical Director, Quality and Patient Safety, Sunnybrook

“I worked through a project bundle regarding safety culture during the EQUIP course. The course significantly contributed to the conceptualization, methodology and strategy for this multi-year project. This project is my key academic endeavor as a research chair, hence the course will have a significant impact on the progress of my career for the next at least half decade.

“We have provided support for a number of our faculty to participate in the EQUIP program – every single one of them raved about the experience and gained a more focused understanding of how to lead robust quality improvement programs locally, as well as expanded their network of experts in the field. We now have included participation in EQUIP as a component of our Hospital Medicine Fellow in Quality & Safety program. EQUIP is a great investment for us, enabling tremendous growth in our local capacity and expertise for improving care delivery.
