Open School" where you can take courses and receive a certificate of completion?
In March, Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS) became the first medical school in the United States to require its students to earn the IHI Open School Basic Certificate of Completion before graduation.
What are these students learning?
The IHI Open School offers 16 self-paced, interactive, online modules in quality improvement (QI), patient safety, leadership, patient- and family-centered care, and managing health care operations.
Two other health professions schools—University at Buffalo School of Nursing, and Texas A&M College of Medicine—will start requiring the Certificate within the next calendar year.
The IHI Open School for Health Professions is an interprofessional educational community that gives students the skills to become change agents in health care improvement. Learn more about the IHI Open School.
