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.

We have an exceptional team of more than 55 faculty, fellows, and staff who have come together to investigate important areas of outcomes, quality improvement, implementation science, comparative effectiveness, and health policy research. This work has had important impacts on patient care and national health care policies, resulting in notable funding, high-impact publications, and training of a future generation of physician scientists.”
