Quality Improvement and Patient Safety

Quality improvement and patient safety initiatives permeate the inpatient and outpatient setting that residents work in at Northwestern Medicine. The residency program has a strong focus on quality improvement and patient safety ranging from experiential learning through clinical care to unique quality projects and hospital committee work. As our health care system rapidly evolves we have been able to adapt our educational curriculum to keep up with the changes.

For residents set on a career path in quality improvement and patient safety, Northwestern offers a Master’s degree in Healthcare Quality and Patient Safety.
