Educational Quality Improvement Strategic Planning (EQISP) Committee

The EQISP Committee, led by co-chairs Darryl Potyk and Sherilyn Smith, is charged with ensuring UWSOM meetings its educational goals in a cost-effective manner for medical student programs and achieving excellence and innovation in our learning programs. This translates to tracking metrics to meet our strategic plan goals, monitoring accreditation standards and areas in need of improvement, providing guidance and recommendations to school leadership on improvements to our programs and ensuring integration of teaching, research and patient care activities with UW Medicine.

The EQISPC is in the process of rewriting the School of Medicine’s Mission, Vision, and Strategic Priorities. You can read the current mission here.
