Call for Letters of Intent - IHQI Improvement Scholars Program

The Institute for Healthcare Quality Improvement requests letters of intent for clinical improvement projects to be conducted Sept. 1, 2019 - Aug. 31, 2020 as part of the Improvement Scholars Program.

The UNC Institute for Healthcare Quality Improvement (IHQI) is soliciting applications from UNC School of Medicine and Health Care System clinical leaders who want to develop clinical improvement skills by participating in the IHQI Improvement Scholars Program.

Applications from all UNC Health Care System entities are encouraged as this program is not exclusive to the Chapel Hill-based entities.

Selected Improvement Scholars will participate in the program and lead a clinical improvement project from Sept 1, 2019 - Aug 31, 2020.

The first step in the application process is to submit a one-page letter of intent outlining a problem in clinical care or outcomes and a proposed improvement strategy. If your letter of intent meets initial selection criteria, you will be invited to submit a full project proposal. Letters of intent are due Nov 7, 2018. Full applications are due Jan 16, 2019.
