QI Projects

QI projects are a great opportunity to gain practical experience in a health care setting. It gives a chance for students to practice quality improvement and patient safety in a year-long project with a student team led by a project champion in a healthcare organization. We give students access to resources that increase their understanding of quality improvement and patient safety, match students with a project and a health care champion, oversee the progression of the project and provide interdisciplinary team networking.

  • Learn from champions in quality improvement
  • Work on a project with a group of 5-6 students
  • Apply quality improvement frameworks and tools to address a real-world health care issue
  • Create a project charter
  • Research ideas for change
  • Manage and test your change implementations through the Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) cycle
  • Present your QI project at the annual Quality Improvement and Patient Safety (QuIPS) conference in May

The completion of IHI QI project is equivalent to an IPE Green credit.
