Included in the GHC will be twelve Pod Casts that will give th resident a working understanding of the primary issues that currently face physicians working in an international health setting.  Specific topics will include reviews of cultural competency, traveler's health, short term global health trips, tropical infectious disease, maternal health and family planning, child health and immunizations, clean water and sanitation, challenges in nutrition, issues round tobacco and HIV, disaster response, comparative health care systems, and health disparities.

There will also be four seminars annually that will be highly interactive and will include reviews of hot topics and journals in global health, individual and community case studies, opportunities to develop and review specific skills and tools that will be useful in international settings, and sharing of inspirational stories.  Finally, residents participating in the GHC will have facilitated opportunities to solidify global health competencies by working in international health settings within the Inland Empire, taking short term mission trips to places like Mexico, and participating in global health electives.

The Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Concentration will provide residents with knowledge and skills that will be useful throughout their careers as physicians.  The first lecture will provide an overview of the nature and frequency of medical errors and adverse events, as well a highlight the importance of creating a culture to support safety and quality improvement.  Additional lectures on Patient Safety will describe the science of errors, systems theory, types of medical errors, error reporting systems, related regulations, and ways to support optimal outcomes through utilization of information technology. 

Two group meetings will include videos and interactive exercises aimed at developing teamwork and communication skills, practicing ways to talk to patients about medical errors, and understanding patient-centered care.  Residents will also be trained in two strategies for Quality Improvement (QI) the Model for Improvement and Lean Six Sigma.  Each resident will have the opportunity to complete a QI project that may focus on a patient safety or other topic of their choice.  Ideally, each resident project should be completed with the participation of at least two other medical team members in the setting chosen by the resident.  The first QI group meeting will give residents an opportunity to practice the application of QI strategies to selected situations.  In the final group meeting, residents will share the result of their QI project with each other.
