Making A Mid-Career Transition

  • January 2, 2016

Yvonne Cheung, MD, MPH, shares with Physician Leadership Journal readers how CRICO’s committed funding for one of the nation’s first physician fellowships focused on quality and patient safety, helped her transition to the dedicated quality and patient safety leader that she is today.


Currently Chair of the Department of Quality and Patient Safety at Mount Auburn Hospital (a CRICO-member organization) in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Cheung’s story begins in July 2012 when she transitioned from being a long-time anesthesiologist to becoming one of four physicians who formed the first fellowship class of the Harvard Medical School Fellowship in Patient Safety and Quality program, funded by CRICO.
