2023 Patient Safety Challenge Fellowship Announced
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.
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 teams will present in-person at the expo-style Finale in August. 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.
The challenge is currently seeking applicants who are graduate students (including health care, public policy, tech, business, and beyond), medical residents, or undergraduate students in health professions or a related field.
Applications are being accepted until the newly extended deadline of May 7. To apply visit: patientsafetytech.com/fellowship.
