Trainees for Quality FIT Program

The Quality Fellowship in Training (FIT) program is designed to introduce residents and fellows in vascular programs to our patient safety organization (VQI/PSO). Using a mentor-directed approach, FIT applicants will work closely with their VQI mentor on participation in regional biannual meetings and review of comparative data including center level quality improvement processes.  Opportunities include engagement in quality charter development, center level QI process and research initiatives using VQI data reviewed by VQI research advisory committee (RAC).   

The 12–18-month program encourages FIT participants to develop quality charters and improvement projects including research using VQI data for presentation at our national VQI@VAM meetings. Five participants will be eligible for a scholarship award, of up to $10,000, named in honor of Jack L Cronenwett, the co-founder of VQI.
