With growing emphasis on healthcare quality improvement (QI) at both national and local levels, there has been increased demand for instructional programs to teach quality improvement as a discipline. Design of QI teaching programs must take into account local resources as well as the background and competing commitments of the learner. In this article, we review elements of successful quality improvement training programs including structure of didactic and experiential curricula. Special considerations for training programs at the undergraduate and graduate medical, hospital, and national/professional society level are presented.
