Education is necessary but not sufficient to achieve excellence in clinical care. Life-long learning must be accompanied by active participation in the continual process of improving the quality of health care and of the health of populations we serve. The UC Davis Annual Healthcare Quality Forum, launched in 2011, fosters our culture of quality through active engagement of life-long, interprofessional collaborations in clinical practice improvement.

The Annual Healthcare Quality Forum is our time to share best practices and innovations in quality initiatives that include trainees and students, or that integrate into undergraduate, graduate or life-long learning programs. Engaging these individuals in clinical quality-improvement and safety efforts creates a pathway to a culture of quality at academic health centers. Employees, house staff, fellows and students at UC Davis Health System as well as Volunteer Clinical Faculty at affiliated institutions are encouraged to participate. The forum is held annually in March. A call for abstracts is available in December with a due date in January.


The deadline for abstract submissions to the 8th Annual UC Davis Healthcare Quality Forum was on January 24, 2018. Abstract submissions to the 2018 Quality Forum are now closed.

Advance registration for the Quality Forum is required.
