Surgical Quality and Effectiveness Group (SQEG)
The Surgical Quality and Effectiveness Group (SQEG) is a multidisciplinary group founded to promote research and clinical improvement surrounding issues of quality and comparative effectiveness. The group resides in the Department of Surgery and consequently has a focus on surgical care and topics related to surgery, but the group is multidisciplinary and interested parties outside of the Department of Surgery are welcomed and encouraged to participate. The group was founded under the charge of Dr. Timothy Eberlein, Dr. Gregory Sicard, and Dr. William Chapman as of January 2010, with the founding leaders of the group being Dr. Graham Colditz and Dr. Bruce Hall. As of January 2011, Dr. Mary Politi and Dr. Seth Strope joined Dr. Colditz and Dr. Hall as the leadership of the group. SQEG meets monthly on the last Tuesday evening of each month, 6:15 – 8 pm in the Center for Advanced Medicine - Farrell Conference Room 1.
