We’re the Chief Residents in Quality & Safety (or CRQS) for the 2023-2024 year! Kaitlyn and Salim are the inpatient CRQSs and Zach is the outpatient CRQS. We primarily work at the Houston VA (the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center). We complete a national VA curriculum on quality improvement and patient safety and hold teaching, leadership, and scholarship roles at Baylor. We lead the quality improvement and patient safety curriculum for the IM residents. You’ll see us as attendings for the medicine wards teams and VA resident continuity clinic as well as facilitating High-Value Care Morning Report and Patient Safety Conferences. We also work behind the scenes on patient safety committees and quality improvement initiatives at the VA.
