ABOUT THE 2023 PATIENT SAFETY CHALLENGE FELLOWSHIP
The 19th annual Patient Safety Fellowship is looking toward the future. During the Patient Safety Challenge Fellowship this summer, fellows will reimagine health care starting from a patient/family perspective and designing it to be vastly safer. Leaving legacy systems behind, fellows will produce a vision of a safer model of care. Fellows will have access to mentors – nationally recognized leaders in patient safety – to help shape their vision. The curriculum will inform the fellows’ understanding of the existing patient safety landscape and opportunities for reinventing the system.
The outcome will be a concept presentation that fellow teams will present in-person at the expo-style Finale on August 14. Academic and healthcare leaders from the Pittsburgh-region will be invited to the finale to hear fellows ideas. A panel of judges will pick a winner, and the winning team will receive a $5,000 cash prize.
