Research Forum & QI Summit

46th Annual Research Forum & 9th Annual Quality Improvement Michigan Summit
Wednesday, May 22, 2024 • Lovett Hall, Henry Ford, Dearborn, MI


With the coming academic year, we are pleased to announce that SEMCME will be celebrating its 50th anniversary. As part of this notable achievement, we are adding new programming (Business of Medicine, and more!), creating a new committee (Orthopedics), and refreshing some of our long-standing programs.

A signature event, the SEMCME Research Forum with the Allen Silbergleit, MD, PhD keynote lecture (formerly the Meadowbrook lecture). As part of the celebratory year, the Research Forum will be combined with the 9th Annual Michigan Summit on Quality Improvement, Patient Safety & High Value Care. This combined event will recognize the top Research and QI efforts of over 70 residents and fellows from the SEMCME member institutions for a day of scholarship, discussion, and competition.  The regional forum provides an opportunity for collegiality and mentoring as the trainees are joined by their clinical faculty, researchers, consortium leadership, and other clinicians.

The luncheon and lecture will take place from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm on Wednesday May 22 and will be an in-person event at the beautiful Lovett Hall, located on the Dearborn campus of the Henry Ford Museum.

We are excited for this new format as it fosters the continued growth and education of Michigan medical trainees, and brings faculty, researchers, and trainees under one roof to share innovative and exciting ideas.

Our speaker will provide the Allen Silbergleit, MD, PhD lecture on “Artificial Intelligence in Medicine: The Hype, the Dreams, and the Reality” helping us understand the exciting possibilities that await us at this pivotal time in medicine.

We welcome all SEMCME members to join us at this signature event that fosters connection and collaboration in the Michigan medical community!
