The QIPs are a concept that have been developed to promote leadership and clinical improvement skills in student learners.<br>The concept of transformational change and its three key theoretical stages are mirrored in Quality Improvement Projects (QIPs). These changes (psychological, Convictional and Behavioural) are integral to developing a learner’s skills in practice which will better prepare them for their professional career.<br>On reflection there are challenges associated with QIPs that relate to clinical maturity, implementation of change and the time needed to effectively deliver QIPs.<br>However, on balance these projects present a unique learning opportunity that will present students with the ability to demonstrate and develop skills that are difficult to practically apply anywhere else.<br>The application of these projects in primary care also prepare students for the professional responsibility of appraisal and revalidation regardless of their speciality of choice.<br><br>This poster was presented at St George's, University of London's Education Day on Wednesday 15 November 2017.
