MedStatStudio Projects: SixS

Although disaster medicine may be an important part of residency training in emergency medicine, many residency programs do not have a structured disaster medicine curriculum. Rather than simply designing a curriculum by consensus, use of the design for six sigma business process management technology – which emphasizes creation of product solution based on customer needs - may allow a more structured approach to curriculum design. The present study describes the use of design for six sigma to create a disaster medicine curriculum for emergency medicine residency training.
