The Berwick & Bisognano IHI Scholarship Fund for Emerging Leaders
Honoring Don Berwick and Maureen Bisognano
The Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) Fellowship has long sought provocateurs, emerging health care leaders anxious to pursue better health care with a vision, passion, and commitment that is determined and unwavering, those who understand that if you want to change the world, the need is compelling, and the time is now.
To further our resolute commitment to equity and opportunity in health care, IHI has established the Berwick & Bisognano IHI Scholarship Fund for Emerging Leaders.
|The Fund is designed to support the mentoring, coaching, and development of health care leaders in quality and safety worldwide, with an intentional and singular focus on providing Fellowship access to leaders of color and those representing populations that have been historically overlooked and undervalued. |
