Educating constituents is essential to an effective, efficient, and efficacious oversight process. The GME office at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio has designed and delivered quarterly presentations on topics salient to enhance the clinical learning environment. The sessions are recorded for asynchronous viewing. In order to reach the maximum number of attendees, each session is offered twice, one at 6:30 a.m. and another at 11:00 a.m. Topics related to the six CLER areas of focus—professionalism, patient safety, quality improvement, duty hours and fatigue mitigation, supervision, and transitions of care—include:

  • Legal and practical issues in interviewing (professionalism)
  • Sleep and fatigue mitigation, which is offered annually in July (professionalism, patient safety, duty hours and sleep mitigation)
  • Disclosing errors and crafting apologies (professionalism, patient safety, quality improvement)
  • Introduction to core measures (quality improvement)
