Center of Outpatient Education Pathway

Veterans Hospital lobby

Program Description

Thank you for your interest in the Center of Outpatient Education (COE) track! This track was started at our VA Primary Care Clinic in 2010 to provide a robust outpatient clinic experience to residents with a focus on training in leadership and quality improvement (QI). The residents in this track complete a longitudinal QI project throughout their residency that is presented locally and nationally. For clinic, residents are paired in teams and together function as the primary care provider for a panel of patients at the Louis Stokes VA Medical Center. Residents work seamlessly with nurses, social workers, psychologists, and pharmacists to provide a patient-centered approach to care.
