IHI Open School (England)

Welcome to the IHI Open School (England) – We are part of the IHI Open School which is an interprofessional educational community giving you the skills to become a change agent in health care.

This is an international organisation with University based Chapters (groups) all over the world.

Chapters are made up of student healthcare professionals actively working on how to improve healthcare. We’re talking about skills like quality improvement, patient safety, teamwork, leadership, and patient-centred care. Employers are looking for these skills, and patients expect providers to have them. But most schools barely touch on these topics. We’re here to help you fill that void.

Watch this video link where Don Berwick, IHI's former president and CEO, explains What's the IHI Open School?

What we do

The IHI Open School (England) holds regular Webinars to discuss issues relevant to student healthcare professionals and their Open School Chapters. We also hold national events including our showcase Conference. Information about our last conference is available for download here:
