Institute for Healthcare Improvement

SWelcome to the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) Open School Chapter

at Samuel Merritt University!


IHI Open School Chapters are interprofessional educational communities that provide students with the opportunity to learn the skills needed to be change agents in healthcare improvement.

These skills include quality improvement, patient safety, teamwork, leadership, and patient-centered care. Employers are looking for these skills, and patients expect providers to have them.

Participation is open to all students and anyone else interested in healthcare improvement: doctors, nurses, businesspeople, and most importantly, patients!
