Study

Demonstrating the value of postgraduate fellowships for physicians in quality improvement and patient safety.

Myers JS, Lane-Fall MB, Perfetti AR, et al. BMJ Qual Saf. 2020;29(8):645-654.

This study used a mixed-methods approach to characterize the impact of two academic fellowships in Quality Improvement Patient Safety (QIPS) to both graduates and their respective institutions. Students in these programs reported a positive impact of the fellowship on their careers, with nearly all being involved in QIPS administration, research or education upon graduation. Interviewed mentors also generally thought the fellowships were important and the resulting research had departmental, institutional and even national importance.
