The Kaiser Permanente Northern California (KP) Patient Safety Fellowship is a one-year program offered by the Regional Graduate Medical Education Office and Regional Quality and Safety Leadership, and may be located at any number of KP medical centers. The purpose of the Interprofessional Fellowship Program in Patient Safety is to provide post-residency trained physicians an in-depth education in patient safety practice, leadership and research. Up to two positions are offered each year.
The goal of the Patient Safety Fellowship training program is to prepare graduates for careers in patient safety leadership, with particular research skills in the areas of redesigning and transforming healthcare delivery.
The fellowship provides one year of educational, program development, and research learning opportunities. Fellows spend their time in training and safety program development and evaluation activities relevant to KP. Mentors of national stature provide guidance to fellows in rich learning environments. Considerable efforts will be applied to connect the fellows to the best and brightest in the health care improvement field, both inside and outside KP.
Applications for the fellowship are due by November 6, 2015.
Candidate must complete the application and upload all required documentation no later than November 6, 2015. Interviews will be conducted December 7, 2015, in Oakland, California.
