The EHHOP Steering Committee is a group of highly motivated second-year medical students, fourth-year medical students, and MD/PhD students who wish to contribute to the development of the clinic and provide service to uninsured residents of East Harlem. Each of its student members is tasked with managing one aspect of clinic operations or patient care. Together, the group defines the future direction of the clinic and collaborates on projects and initiatives to help EHHOP improve.
The EHHOP Executive Committee is EHHOP's senior leadership body. Five of the Steering Committee Members are also appointed to the Executive Committee: the 2nd-Year Clinic Chair, the 4th-Year Clinic Chair, the Chief Clinic Manager and Chair of Clinic Management, the Chief Teaching Senior and Chair of Clinical Care, and the Operations Chair. Dr. Yasmin Meah, EHHOP Program Director, Dr. David Thomas, EHHOP Medical Director, and Omayra Rolon, EHHOP Head Social Worker compose the rest of the Executive Committee.
EHHOP Coordinators are students dedicated to leadership in a specific, defined area within the EHHOP organization, such as the EHHOP Spanish Interpreter Program. Coordinators do not sit on the Steering Committee or Executive Committee, but rather collaborate extensively with a designated member of the Steering Committee, to whom they report directly.
EHHOP Subcommittees are comprised of first- and second-year medical students with an interest in becoming more involved in the clinic. These positions are generally filled in the fall, with the spirit of opening EHHOP experience to as many students as possible.
The Quality Improvement Council
The Quality Improvement Council (QIC) was created in Spring 2011 to provide a formalized structure in which students at EHHOP could work in teams of four-five in order to a) conduct rigorous analyses of problems associated with quality of care at EHHOP and b) to test solutions for improvement to these issues. QIC teams have tackled challenges including referrals, patient no-shows, physician recruitment, and clinic manager use of the interpreter phone.
