There are a number of tasks that need to be completed before the start of the academic year, and one of those foundational steps is to add new residents to your medical education system. Don't forget, there are a few ways to enter new residents that matched to your program(s) in E*Value if you haven't already done so.
  • If you need further assistance, please contact client services at In the subject line of your email, please include "ERAS User Import" along with your E*Value program ID.

IHI Open School Training Requirements

The Graduate Medical Education Committee approved the training requirements for all NEW residents and NEW fellows for the 2018-2019 academic year. This training is required and is intended to supplement your current or planned specialty/subspecialty Patient Safety and Quality Improvement activities. This applies only to your NEW residents and NEW fellows joining UMMC.

Please note that there is only one deadline this year for all courses to be completed as follows:

  • All new residents/fellows must complete the following courses/lessons by September 1, 2018

The courses/lessons are:

  • PS101: Introduction to Patient Safety (3 lessons included in the course)

Important Documents

Each program is responsible for collecting the documentation and verifying completion of the courses/lessons by the required deadline. DO NOT send the certificates to the GME office. If your residents and fellows completed these courses/lessons previously, either at UMMC or another institution, they should print out the summary of their transcripts as evidence of compliance of the required training. We also recommend and request that any resident or fellow who has completed courses/lessons in the IHI Open School training assure that their affiliation is updated to reflect the University of Maryland Medical Center GME. This will assure training assignments for future academic years are appropriately associated with our institution for any ad hoc reporting that may be done at an institutional level.
