Patient safety and quality are of paramount importance to the delivery of health care. Harvard Medical School’s postgraduate safety and quality programs provide participants with a toolkit of strategies and knowledge that enable them to drive organizational improvement and identify paths to improve care delivery within complex health systems. These programs are designed for medical doctors, nurses, administrative leaders, policy makers, researchers and other industry professionals.

Most programs are delivered in a blended learning format with in-person sessions taking place at Harvard Medical School, as well as in locations around the world. Applications are accepted for these programs and learning experiences can also be tailored for specific groups and audiences.
