Admission Requirements – QIPS
Successful applicants are required to have some QI experience with an excellent record of scholarship and an aptitude for quality improvement and patient safety. Applicants should have graduated from a 4-year undergraduate program with at least a B+ standing in the last two years of study from an accredited university. Due to the nature of the program, preference will normally be given to applicants with Canadian or permanent resident status within Canada, who are employed and who can apply a quality improvement or patient safety project in a work-place setting.
As part of the online application process, two confidential letters of reference from academic and/or professional supervisors are to be submitted that indicate to the admissions committee the applicant’s academic ability and career aspirations and a comment on the student’s potential benefit from the Quality Improvement and Patient Safety concentration. Applicants must also scan and upload their transcripts to the application website.
Applicants are requested to provide a Curriculum Vitae and a statement of intent that outlines their aspirations, learning goals, research interests, and experience relevant to quality improvement and patient safety. The statement of intent should not be more than 1.5 pages in length.
