Quality Enhancement Plan

A Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is intended to enhance student learning in some significant and measurable way, and often builds upon existing or emerging efforts within colleges or schools.  Our institution’s first QEP—”Beyond Silos: Enhancing Ethics Education in and across the Health Professions”—builds on the Campus-Wide Ethics Program (CWEP), previously directed by Jeffrey Spike, PhD, and was coordinated by Nathan Carlin, PhD, in collaboration with university-wide faculty and staff. The QEP brought together faculty, students, and administrators of UTHealth’s six schools to work together on interprofessional ethics education. The McGovern Center was responsible for carrying out UTHealth’s QEP.

“Beyond Silos: Enhancing Ethics Education In and Across the Health Professions” is an unpublished university document. This document was submitted as the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) as part of the reaffirmation of accreditation process of UTHealth in 2010.
