More Fellowship Content

Patient Safety & Quality Fellowship

The Risk Management Foundation of the Harvard Medical Institutions (CRICO) grants the HMS Fellowship in Patient Safety & Quality to train physician-scholars to lead operational improvement efforts.


This innovative 2-year program creates future leaders in patient safety and quality and is open to physicians of any specialty who are residents of the US, and are currently in—or have previously completed—a residency or fellowship program. The experience includes didactics and extensive hands-on experience in organizational quality and safety.

Fellows receive a per annum stipend and a tuition-paid Master’s Degree of Healthcare Quality and Safety at Harvard Medical School*. They will be sited at a Harvard teaching institution and work with a mentor at that institution. Learn more about our current and alumni Fellows through bios and video interviews. Please consider applying or sharing our information with qualified candidates.
