Get Ready to Learn. Empower. Improve.

The Michigan Surgical Quality Collaborative is excited to welcome you to its 2017 Conference being held in October 2017 at Boyne Mountain Resort(link is external), Boyne Falls, Michigan. 

This year’s conference is dedicated to the spirit of learning, empowering, and improving. The MSQC continues to make rapid advances toward fulfilling its mission of optimizing care and outcomes statewide for all surgical patients.  Our work creates a culture whereby surgeons, hospitals and communities work together to discover best practices and opportunities for improvement. 

The focus of the MSQC 2017 Conference is to highlight the important work done by all of our many MSQC member hospitals throughout the state of Michigan. The Conference provides all of us, together, the great opportunity to examine our work as a leader of improving surgical care, share what we have learned about ourselves this past year, and discuss our successes and goals for the rest of this year and into the future.

The extraordinary effort of all of our 72 sites, surgical clinical quality reviewers and surgeon champions is sincerely appreciated.  It is through their efforts that the work of change is promoted and improvements in surgical care are made possible. 

Conference registration is open. An agenda will be available later in the year. For those wanting to get a head start on planning for the conference, we have answers to some Frequently Asked Questions here

Please consider submitting an abstract for a poster presentation or participating in our Surgical Shark Tank Competition, and if you have any questions, please get in touch(link sends e-mail).

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you in Boyne!
