2017-2019 HMS Fellows In Patient Safety and Quality

Patient Safety & Quality Fellowship

The Risk Management Foundation of the Harvard Medical Institutions (CRICO) funds the HMS Fellowship in Patient Safety and Quality to train physician-scholars to lead operational improvement efforts. You will find news and opportunities regarding this fellowship on this page. Please consider applying or passing this along to qualified candidates.


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 in—or 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 tuition-paid MPH through the Harvard School of Public Health and will be based at a Harvard teaching institution and work with a mentor at that institution.
