Interested in improving the quality of care in a developing country but not sure how to get started?

Curious about how effective, lasting improvements are made in rural, resource-poor settings?

Then join us for the next On Call and hear the story of how Dr. Patrick Lee and his teammates helped make dramatic improvements at a hospital in Kirehe, Rwanda. Dr. Lee, a volunteer clinical mentor for Partners in Health, recently finished a residency in internal medicine and primary care at Massachusetts General Hospital.

You’ll learn how Dr. Lee and his team prioritized their improvement goals, overcame the lack of resources and infrastructure, and built staff consensus and trust. You’ll also discover how you can apply the team’s learnings to your own work in a developing country or right here in the US – whether you are in a clinical or non-clinical setting.
