PSMF leadership will work with each fellow to design an individualized education plan that is tailored to the background, goals, needs, and specific health context of the region represented by the fellow. Learning opportunities and creative experiences will be optimized to create a unique experience for each individual. The curriculum emphasizes a holistic focus on applied principles such as, but not limited to, developing highly reliable cultures, enhancing genuine person and patient-centeredness, measuring change, implementing patient safety solutions across the continuum of care, and facilitating performance improvement initiatives.
Fellows will have opportunities for interaction and collaboration with a global network of patient safety and quality leaders, will be invited to Irvine, CA for the Patient Safety Movement Foundation’s World Patient Safety, Science, and Technology Summit upon completion of their program, and will facilitate and lead clinical coaching efforts with hospitals and healthcare organizations across the globe.
Eligible candidates possess a graduate or postgraduate degree or equivalent, demonstrate a commitment to learning and to patient safety (as evidenced by previous research, experiences, or interprofessional collaboration), and are working professionals. Candidates should clearly articulate how they will improve their learning and networking, as well as how they intend to spread global improvement as future leaders.
