"Following the release of the Institute of Medicine's reports, 'To Err Is Human' and 'Crossing the Quality Chasm,' there has been a tremendous increase in interest in healthcare quality and patient safety. These reports also resulted in increases in the breadth and complexity of information related to the sciences of managing healthcare quality and patient safety."

Our program aims to develop leaders in healthcare and in healthcare improvement. We bring together national thought leaders to guide our students in accomplishing these goals. The program is designed to engage students in the development of meaningful quality and safety knowledge while building important leadership potential. We have a proven track record: 89 percent of our students achieve an increase in their leadership position. Advance your career and lead this much-needed change."
