Institutional GME Healthcare Principles in Practice Series

Each year the University of Tennessee College of Medicine Chattanooga sponsors an Institutional Core Curriculum called our Healthcare Principles in Practice Series (HPP).  At this time, the 2021-2022 Academic Year sessions are continuing to utilize the Zoom platform and are recorded for those that cannot connect the live Zoom.

The purpose of the HPP Series is to augment overall resident and fellow Graduate Medical Education in areas that are applicable to all disciplines and specialties. These HPP sessions are usually held the 2nd Tuesday of each month between Noon and 1 PM and focus on general broad-based topics such as those relating to Quality Improvement and Patient Safety, Well-Being, Professionalism, Sleep and Fatigue Mitigation, Prescribing, Substance-Abuse, etc. All faculty, residents, fellows, and students are encouraged to attend HPP sessions; however, all 1st, 2nd, and 3rd year residents and fellow required to attend or view the recording at a later time. Due to the impact of the COVID-19 and to support efforts for minimizing large groups to maintain physicl distancing, our HPP series has moved to the Zoom platform.  We have established a UT College of Medicine Chattanooga YouTube Channel in which all our HPP session recordings are housed.  Links are emailed to Coordinators as soon as the recordings are uploaded to the channel.
