The iCOMPARE innovation tournament was designed to crowdsource ideas to improve internal medicine residency. During phase one, more than 300 thoughtful and creative ideas were submitted by residents, faculty, and program directors from across the country. In phase two, we engaged individuals from internal medicine residency to rate and comment on ideas submitted by their peers. More than 14,000 ratings were logged.
What happens next?
The challenge committee currently reviewing ideas. Lottery winners and winners in special categories will be announced this spring. After the tournament concludes, the iCOMPARE team will synthesize findings for publication so that the gathered insights can be picked up and implemented to make residency in internal medicine better.
