Our mission is to promote innovative educational opportunities that increase the knowledge, competence and performance of physicians and other allied health care professionals. Our program includes an expansive range of activities designed for anyone in the health care arena, from medical students and faculty to practicing physicians and nurses. We proudly support UC Davis Health's commitment to “improving lives and transforming health care.”

Educational Content

Our educational activities are designed to fill professional practice gaps identified through ongoing needs assessments. This allows us to create courses that increase a learner's medical knowledge and competence, helping them improve their clinical skills and performance.

Interprofessional partners are encouraged to collaborate on content development to support medical teams. ACGME, ABMS and/or AOA competencies are typically incorporated into educational activities.

Participation Results

Our goal is to develop educational activities that advance a participant's medical knowledge and performance in practice, ultimately leading to better patient outcomes.

After participating in the program, learners should be able to:

  • Display greater confidence in their professional capabilities.
  • Demonstrate their ability to apply knowledge they have gained.
  • Make a commitment to change their practice or behavior as a result of the educational program.
  • Show improvement on specific performance measures and/or patient outcomes, through quality and patient safety metrics.
