In addition to the learning you’ll be exposed to and individuals you’ll meet during the workshop sessions, the IHI Open School has designed student-centered events that will allow students and residents establish connections with other attendees.
6th Annual IHI Open School Chapter Congress
December 9, 4:30-7:30 pm at the Gaylord Palms Resort—Sun C
The Chapter Congress is an opportunity for Chapters to come together, share their successes, challenges, and generate ideas for the new year. The event also gives Chapter members the opportunity to meet other leaders in the community, share best practices, and build new skill sets.
This exclusive, free event will include:
- Speeches from Dr. Donald Berwick, President Emeritus and Senior Fellow at IHI, and Dr. Jack Cochran, Executive Director of The Permanente Federation at Kaiser Permanente
- A special activity led by Dr. Cochran and Dr. Berwick that will put all your quality improvement knowledge and skills to the test
- The opportunity to swap stories of your Chapter’s triumphs and challenges with other Chapters from around the world
Registration is required and can be completed by selecting the Chapter Congress option under IHI Open School Student events within your National Forum enrollment.
