Description

ONU established its residency teaching certificate program (RTCP) in 2009 with the intent to promote pharmacy education, train future faculty and preceptors, enhance the diversity of residency experiences, and to strengthen and maintain relationships with affiliated teaching sites. Continuous quality improvement of the program is essential to ensure that best practices are determined and implemented each year. The primary objective of this quality improvement project was to identify perceptions of past RTCP participants regarding program seminars, activities, and requirements, to determine the short-term and long-term impact on their careers and interaction with learners, and to improve the program to meet future participants needs. The research team created a 25 item, IRB-approved Qualtrics survey. Question topics included demographic information, mentorship, opinions while in the RTCP, opinions based on current role, evaluation of program activities and seminar topics, and overall feedback. Eighty-nine out of 93 past participants were sent the survey via email in September 2019 and were given 12 days to complete the survey. Informed consent was provided and there was no compensation for participation. The survey was completed by 41 individuals and the response data was analyzed and coded by the research team.

Results: In Progress

Conclusion: In Progress
