Faculty Network

The efforts of university faculty and other educators around the world have been instrumental to the IHI Open School’s efforts to bring skills in quality improvement, leadership, and patient safety to current and soon-to-be health care professionals. Faculty have used IHI Open School courses to teach quality and safety at more than 1,000 universities, organizations, and hospitals. Many also play a pivotal role as faculty advisors, guiding IHI Open School Chapters as they spread awareness, advocate for curriculum integration, and engage in project-based learning opportunities. To support this group, the IHI Open School offers special resources for educators, whether they are university professors or GME faculty.

Resources for Faculty

  • A weekly newsletter from the Open School that highlights new courses, resources, and additional content about improvement, safety, leadership, and innovation.
  • A Chapter Map to see if your institution has an active Chapter – many are looking for additional faculty advisors!
  • Faculty user group (Click on link in upper right to join group) to facilitate networking and provide support as you use the courses.
