Safety, Quality, Informatics and LeadershipIn today's health care environment, change is constant. Despite new innovations and technologies, the challenges of strained health care resources, high turn-over and long wait times continue to impact the patient experience.
Harvard Medical School's Safety, Quality, Informatics and Leadership (SQIL) program provides learners with the fundamental knowledge of the Learning Health System; a method dedicated to producing quality improvements in patient care and safety.
With programs in multiple locations commencing in May 2022, the SQIL program truly brings the best practices in health care leadership to professionals around the world.
The next class will begin in May 2022.
This health care informatics program is designed for both medical and non-medical professionals who either work or are transitioning into clinical quality and patient safety roles. Along with Harvard faculty guidance and support, learners will collaborate, discuss and solve problems to deeper understand the themes of safety, quality, informatics and leadership. Our blended curriculum allows students to study around their professional commitments, but harness the power of teamwork through in-person workshops.
