Author information

Center for the Evaluative Clinical Sciences, Dartmouth Medical School, Hanover, New Hampshire, USA.


If we wish to improve the results of a system, what is needed to help health professionals learn about the redesign of that system? To create learning experiences that will attract good health professionals, a special blend of practical insight and critical thinking is required. To enjoy good standing in the academy, these leaders must be able to design, conduct, and disseminate knowledge-building activities subject to peer review. This is the story of the development of the United States Veteran's Health Administration Quality Scholars Program from those who designed and formed it to prepare health professional teachers and academics.
