A survey of academic medicine departments sought to identify quality improvement and patient safety activities in written promotion criteria. Investigators suggest language to use in promotion criteria that acknowledges quality and safety activities as core to clinical excellence, includes quality and safety as areas of scholarship, and delineates how the impact of these activities should be evaluated. The authors recommend that academic medical centers adopt such criteria across more institutions.
