QI Spotlight: Dr. Alan Gob wins ICRE Award

Congratulations to Dr. Alan Gob for winning the top What Works paper presentation award from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada at the October 2022 International Conference on Residency Education (ICRE) for his presentation entitled, ‘Scaling and spreading quality improvement education in the face of scarcity: Doing more with less.’ Each year, ICRE awards are presented to medical educators for their valuable contributions to residency education.

Dr. Gob, supported by CQUINS co-authors Joan Binnendyk and Joe Carson, discussed creating capacity in quality improvement education through an innovative approach that capitalizes on existing resources. The talk was based on the long-running Bootcamp in Sustainable Quality (BISQ) course which has been providing quality improvement education to medical trainees since 2014.
