Surgical Outcomes & Quality Improvement Center
The Surgical Outcomes & Quality Improvement Center (SOQIC) is a collaborative health services, outcomes, health policy, and quality improvement research enterprise of more than 60 faculty, fellows, and staff. We are focused on measuring and improving healthcare quality locally, regionally, and nationally. Our research spans all surgical specialties and areas of medicine, with a particular focus on general surgery and surgical oncology. We lead the Northwestern Medicine Quality Innovation Center, which is at the intersection of quality improvement, innovation, and research. SOQIC also has a robust training program for both medical students, surgical residents, and postdoctoral fellows, including multiple federally funded institutional training grants.
