There is a growing interest in all health-provider institutions to research and solve quality and safety issues in patient care. However, they are facing an absence of specialist medical practitioners in this field and are, therefore, forced to introduce specialists from the industrial sector who strive to solve infrastructure and comfort problems or who train empirically through their daily practice, unable to have an impact on the physician-patient relationship in clinical and surgical processes, and, thus, failing to make the fundamental aspect of patient safety the focus of attention of the quality programs currently being developed in public and private healthcare institutions.

The Residency in Health Care Quality responds to the need for professionals who can form part of a dynamic, developmental, reforming process tied to the hospital and ambulatory experience and reality, linked inextricably to the hospital and healthcare clinics, with in-depth, consolidated knowledge in several areas of medicine to enhance medical practice within a multidisciplinary team.

The program facilitates the integration of knowledge, skills, abilities and attitudes concerning Health Care Quality with a level of proficiency that provides the resident and future specialist with the leadership to direct and assist in the analysis, restructuring and improvement of processes of change in medical and surgical attention in any of the three levels of attention ? ambulatory, hospital and emergency ? that affect the physical, mental and social health of individuals. Knowledge related to the quality, safety, self-sustainability and standardization of clinical processes is integrated within a framework of evidence-based medicine that guarantees its application from the initial patient contact to the patient?s recovery in any public or private healthcare system.
