We are excited to share that the Penn Center for Healthcare Improvement & Patient Safety (Penn CHIPS) has developed a graduate-level course to fill a gap in health equity quality improvement education. Our hope is that by providing education in this area, we may generate new equity improvement work, embed an equity lens in key projects already in existence, and increase the number of healthcare team members with knowledge and skills in equity QI.
This new course, “Using Quality Improvement to Achieve Health and Healthcare Equity,” will be co-directed by Renée Betancourt, MD who is the Vice-Chair for DEI in Family and Community Medicine and Tyneshia Harris Howzell, who is the Senior Enterprise Improvement Advisor in the Center for Healthcare Quality & Analytics, Center for Health Equity at CHOP.
The course will run from January – April 2024 in a hybrid format. Exact course dates and times can be found here. Staff tuition benefits may be applied as this course is 1.0 Credit Unit at the University of Pennsylvania. Click here to see the course flyer.
