QISP 2017-2018 Applications Now Open

The Quality & Innovation Scholars Program (QISP) is a unique six month long interdisciplinary, team-based practicum opportunity in healthcare quality improvement.

Each year after an application process, QISP scholars are paired with Duke University Health System faculty conducting forward-thinking Quality Improvement and Innovation work. In addition, scholars complete a formalized curriculum (IHI Open School Modules) and discussion sessions led by faculty members.

Examples of past project opportunities include:

  • Standardizing Text Paging to Improve Physician-Nurse Communication: A Pilot Study
  • Standardizing Protocols in the Duke Outpatient Clinic.
  • Developing patient literacy evaluation processes
  • Assessing the efficiency of primary-care-to-specialty-care referrals
  • Creating pediatric care guidelines and improving adherence to evidence based care
  • Reconciling quality indicators in surgery across multiple databases
  • Developing a balance sheet of provider performance to improve efficiency in outpatient, underserved settings


Applications to the Quality & Innovation Scholars Program 2017-2018 are NOW OPEN!
