As part of the Master in Healthcare Quality and Safety program, graduate students from Harvard Medical School participated in a half-day Risk and Evidence-based Intervention Course at the Center for Medical Simulation. Ten healthcare professionals were introduced to the healthcare safety and quality benefits of simulation-based education.
Lead by Jeff Cooper, PhD, Roxane Gardner, MD MSHPEd, DSc, and Toni Beth Walzer, MD the class was given a brief history of simulation and how to create a safe learning environment.

The yearlong Master’s program was launched in 2018 and is now accepting students for its 2019-2020 program:
