Educational Innovations Project (EIP)
The Department of Internal Medicine is proud to be one of the 21 programs in the United States selected by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) for the Educational Innovations Project (EIP).
In 2005, the ACGME's Internal Medicine Residency Review Committee developed the EIP to reform Internal Medicine training.
EIP accreditation focuses less on process measures, placing emphasis instead on improving educational and patient care outcomes. We have adopted this emphasis on outcomes within our own program.
The innovations EIP programs have created and tested are varied, but fall under several themes:
- Learning Environment Innovations
- Patient Safety Enhancements
- Performance Improvement
- Curricular Changes
- Evaluation Tools
Our program encompasses all of these themes and in 2008, Eric Warm, MD, program director in internal medicine, was elected the National Educational Innovations Project chair.
As you review our website you will encounter many of the products of our EIP efforts, and sense the spirit of innovation that represents our residency program.
