Training residents to improve clinical quality, safety, and efficacy is important both to prepare residents for independent practice and to engage residents in improving care now. However, interviews with leads in each of our institution's 22 residency programs found that the substantial majority of programs did not provide systematic didactic training with project experience.

Institutional personnel encouraged programs to identify faculty leads for QI training, developed flexible basic curricula, and trained identified faculty. These efforts continue as more programs identify faculty QI leads. Active central institutional involvement is needed to facilitate the development of QI training across all residency programs.
