Students will attend interactive seminars ranging of up to 2 hours each. These seminars will reingorce aspects of the IHI open School modules as well as provide a forum to discuss ongoing aspects of patient safety, quality improvement and high value care and apply the concepts to a series of standardized patient scenarios. Outside of seminar time, students will apply concepts to medical errors to practice developing system-based solutions. The application of the concepts will be placed into a portfolio. At the conclusion of the elective, students will present their portfolios to the class for further discussion.
