Improving Patient Care through Education: The Mayo Clinic Quality and Safety Initiative
“Improving Patient Care through Education: The Mayo Clinic Quality and Safety Initiative” is an innovative project that recognizes the importance of teaching quality and safety as subjects in their own right. The Mayo’s curriculum initiative addresses the need to integrate these topics into medical education, with the hope that the new curriculum will be widely adopted.
Prathibha Varkey, MD, MPH, is the principal investigator on this $350,000 Macy Foundation grant, which runs from 2009 through June 2012.
