Our Mission

The UW IHI Open School Chapter is an interprofessional student organization that provides opportunities for health science students to collaborate and learn more about quality improvement in healthcare.

Our Vision

We aspire to:

  • Create a more intimate health sciences community among students at the University of Washington, as well as with the surrounding Seattle healthcare community
  • Increase awareness and understanding of the principles of patient safety and quality improvement in healthcare
  • Prepare UW health sciences students to enter the workforce as teammates rather than autonomous individuals
