Thank you to all faculty, residents, and housestaff who embarked on the geographic wards journey at UCMC this week. We couldn’t have asked for a better start. This smooth takeoff was largely due to you all who leaned in and embraced this new structure. We still have a lot of work to make this the best patient care and resident education possible, but we are on the first step of the journey.
Check out the UCMC Geographic Wards page to learn more about the general structure and specifics of each service. If you have questions, please ask Elliott or Greg.
Your input is vital for improvement, we will be having daily meetings at 3 PM in the UH NRR on Monday-Friday to get your feedback - we want to know what is working and what we can improve
If you miss a 3 PM meeting or want to know what was discussed, the minutes of these meetings and answers to questions will be posted daily in the “3 PM Meeting / Feedback” section on the geographic wards page
You can also fill out the feedback section at the bottom of the UCMC Geographic Wards page
