Quality Training Program

Course Structure

The 6-month program includes five days of in-person (unless noted otherwise below) learning across three sessions, as well as hands-on learning at the participants’ practices. To ensure a well-rounded experience, sessions include seminars, case examples, and small group exercises.

Participants who complete the course are eligible for CME credits. The locations will change each year within the United States and also in international locations. If you are interested in hosting a QTP in your region or country, please complete our International Interest Survey and contact us.

Two to four members of each team, including the team leader, must attend three meetings (even if the meetings are virtual).

QTP Winter 2022 has started, and the application is closed. Summer QTP is currently planned for the following dates & locations (depending on COVID restrictions).
