Patient Safety Fellowship

…one of The JHF Feinstein Fellowships

The Patient Safety Fellowship provides a unique forum for graduate students in health-related disciplines to learn from leading experts who are actively engaged in quality improvement efforts in our region. At the same time, Fellows learn and apply the Pittsburgh Regional Health Initiative’s (PRHI) process improvement methodology, Perfecting Patient CareSM, which seeks to deliver patient-centered, error-free care to every patient, every time.

As part of the fellowship, you will have the opportunity to learn from winners of the 2016 Fine Awards - A Commitment to Quality: Spreading Excellence from Generation to Generation. Sponsored by The Fine Foundation and JHF, the 2017 Fine Awards recognize healthcare teams that exhibit innovative, exceptional performance in behavioral health and quality improvement.

Students from diverse health-related disciplines, such as policy, medicine, rehabilitation, public health, business, nursing, social work, health law, engineering, and other fields, who are interested in improving health care are encouraged to apply.

Fellowship sessions will be held on the following Tuesdays from 3:00 – 7:00pm (dinner provided) in Downtown Pittsburgh:

  • June 6, 13, 20, and 27
  • July 11, 18, and 25
  • August 1 (Final Presentations)

In addition to these sessions, Fellows will be required to participate in on-site observations in various healthcare settings for approximately 3-4 hours in June.
