The Master's degree of Healthcare Quality and Safety (MHQS) provides clinicians and clinical administrators with the operational skills to lead and work effectively in quality improvement and safety initiatives within their own health care organizations. This one-year degree program requires accepted students to move to Boston for the duration of the program and complete a capstone project in one of the Harvard teaching hospitals.
The MHQS program also offers a part-time, two year, option for professionals in the Boston area who may need to align coursework with their busy schedules. The model of instruction consists of intensive workshops, longitudinal seminar series and a Capstone Project. Both the one-year and two-year options require the learner be able to attend in-person on the Harvard Medical School campus.
