Accreditation & Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI)
The College of Medicine – Tucson (COM-T) prides itself in its pursuit of excellence in patient care, research and education. In an on-going effort to improve our medical education program, a Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) system has been established linked directly to the expectations for educational process and outcomes as contained in accreditation standards to carry out improvements in a systematic way. See CQI policy.
