Quality Core Network

Quality Core logo

Quality CORE is an open network of individuals across UVA who have an interest and/or expertise in quality and improvement pursuits.  The network provides an opportunity for individuals to connect with others with similar interests, contribute to UVA-wide and unit-level improvement efforts, and further develop their skills and knowledge.

Participate in a session to help create an enhanced capacity for cross-UVA connections and collaborations, provide a forum to access and utilize best practices for solving cross-institutional and unit challenges, and learn new perspectives and approaches to quality, innovation, and change.
