Abstract

Growing emphasis on ambulatory service delivery in academic medical centers has heightened interest in improving operational efficiencies, while providing an optimal educational experience for medical students and residents. One significant challenge in the academic environment is maximizing resource utilization (both physical plant and personnel), through scheduling and operational effectiveness. This article examines how academic ambulatory practices can apply operational and scheduling process redesign methodologies to improve throughput and productivity, while enhancing the educational experience for students/residents.
