What's New

Welcome to the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics GME Office. Following are updates and announcements for residents and fellows at UW Hospital and Clinics.


Congratulations to Denise Mussehl, MS, for the ACGME 'GME Program Coordinator Excellence' Award


We're proud to announce that Denise Mussehl, MS, Anesthesiology Program Manager, has been selected as one of the recipients for the ACGME "GME Program Coordinator Excellence" Award. This award was created to honor and recognize the very crucial role that program coordinators play in the success of a residency program. Ms. Mussehl will receive her award in March 2015 at the ACGME Annual Education Conference in San Diego.


Second Annual GME QI Awards


This past year, another cohort of PG1s (now currently PG2s) finished the UW Hospital and Clinics GME Quality Improvement curriculum, including the Introduction to Patient Safety and Quality Improvement modules through MedHub, lessons through the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, and a QI assessment.


We recognize the following programs and individuals for being top achievers in the QI curriculum. Programs were distinguished by average score of post-tests for all PG1 residents, and individuals were distinguished by pre- and post-test scores along with the extent of IHI lesson completion. Individuals and residents in the awarded programs will receive a gift card to EVP and/or the Babcock Hall Dairy Store.


Thanks for all your hard work this year!
