Patient Safety Leadership Online Programs

Lead the Change.

It's time for change in healthcare. It's time for inter-professional, patient-centered thinking that measurably improves the quality and safety in patient care. It's time for you to lead the change.

The UIC Patient Safety Leadership Programs, offered by the Department of Medical Education in the UIC College of Medicine, offer you the opportunity to learn ways to lead your organization to a culture of high quality patient care. You can enroll in either the three course graduate certificate program or the nine course master's program.

The Patient Safety, Error Science and Full Disclosure Certificate is a graduate-level program offered entirely online and designed as an introduction to the issues involved in patient care quality and safety. The graduate certificate also addresses skills and strategies needed to improve patient care outcomes such as risk assessment methods and communication strategies to ensure patient safety success.

The Master of Science degree is offered online with a one week on-site residency in Chicago. The graduate degree focuses on inter-professional teamwork, simulation training, communication, collaboration and organizational change. You will learn to design, implement and lead a broad range of patient safety and quality healthcare activities. You will also connect with experienced faculty and a multidisciplinary network of fellow healthcare professionals who, like you, are committed to improving patient safety.

Courses were developed specifically for the PSL programs by distinguished faculty from the UIC College of Medicine, a recognized leader in the field.

We invite you to explore the Patient Safety Leadership programs and take the next step toward becoming a leader in improving healthcare quality.
