1 Open SchoolI mentioned earlier that we want your involvement with the IHI Open School, and so I want to explain what that is and where it came from. The IHI, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, is one of the most respected organizations in the world committed to fighting for better health care, for quality improvement, for reducing medical errors. The IHI is probably best known for campaigns like the 100,000 Lives Campaign and the 5 Million Lives Campaign that literally have saved that many patient lives by changing the practices of hospitals across the country and across the world to better embrace these quality ideas and processes. What the IHI realized is that this movement is so profoundly important that we’ve got to get health care professionals involved as early as possible. We need the next generation thinking about this, and unfortunately, the reality is that medical schools aren’t changing as fast as the health care world is.
2 IHI Open School Mission “Advance health care improvement and patient safety competencies in the next generation of health professionals worldwide.”The IHI Open School launched in September Our ultimate goal is for every health professions student entering the workforce to have the necessary skills to become a change agent for quality improvement and patient safety.

Each course comprises 3-5 lessons that take between 1 and 2 hours to complete. Each lesson ends with some assessment questions to test the learner and help the education stick.They are completely free for students, residents, faculty, and users from the least-developed country. Upon completing of the 16 core courses, a learner receives the Certificate of Completion, which is a nice addition to any professional resume. (In fact, many students have told us that their residency interviews and job interviews turn into conversations about the importance of quality improvement to the future of health care.)Professionals can take the courses, too. The fee is $250 per year and organizations can purchase bulk subscriptions if they want to train a large number of staff.Oh, and we have an app, too!
