2018 Quality & Innovation Scholars Program (QISP) Symposium

This month the 2017-2018 QISP participants gathered to share the results of their work through the program. Through the QISP program students receive didactic learning on quality improvement and patients safety and attend discussions sessions led by faculty members. The scholars are also paired with Duke University Health System faculty conducting forward-thinking Quality Improvement and Innovation work. This April, the students gathered at the School of Medicine for our annual symposium to share the results of their work with fellow students and faculty members! 25 QISP student participants presented their work at the symposium – with 18 posters and 8 podium presentations.
