This component of the Pursuing Excellence initiative is designed to help support Sponsoring Institutions that seek to improve the quality of their clinical learning environments by focusing selectively on one of the six original CLER Focus Areas of patient safety, health care quality, care transitions, supervision, duty hours/fatigue management and mitigation, and professionalism.

Although narrower in scope and shorter in duration than the Pathway Innovators component, this component will bring together key individuals from the participating sites of ACGME-accredited Sponsoring Institutions to identify new structures and processes for optimizing the learning environment in the chosen Focus Area.
