Residency training: developing a program of quality and safety to train resident neurologists for the future.

Author information

Department of Neurology, University of California, San Francisco, USA.


Attention to quality and safety metrics is increasingly important for all physicians in practice due to mandates by governmental organizations, insurers, the public, and accreditation bodies. Neurology resident trainees need to acquire these skills, but little research in and outside of neurology provides guidance as to how to teach these important concepts. In the setting of new requirements mandating that training programs address these topics, we propose a number of strategies that can be implemented immediately in neurology residency training programs and call for increased investigation and sharing of best practices in order to adequately prepare neurology residents for the current and future environment of practice.
