This webinar is the first in a series of presentations designed around the six CLER Focus areas. The presenters will examine the data from the recent CLER National Report of Findings 2016 and engage the community in a dialogue about we have learned.

Speakers: Kevin B. Weiss, MD, MPH, Senior Vice President for Institutional Accreditation, Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)

John Combes, Chief Medical Officer and Senior Vice President at the American Hospital Association (AHA) and the President of the Center for Healthcare Governance (CHG)

Dr. Weiss, MD, MPH will discuss the purpose of the Clinical Learning Environment Review (CLER) program, share key themes, and data from the National Report of Findings 2016. He will highlight some of the progress made toward engaging resident and fellow physicians to improve patient safety, health care quality, and other focus areas as well as high-leverage opportunities.

Dr. Combes will share his perspective on how the CLER focus and process are providing teaching hospitals an important opportunity to examine and reimagine their care environments. By engaging residents in the implementation and improvement of their care environments creates increased patient satisfaction while developing the physician workforce.

Learning Objectives:
• Define six focus areas associated with effective clinical learning environments
• Identify areas of high-leverage improvement associated with being a teaching environment
• Consider what healthcare and physician leaders can do to impact change
