About us

UTIHI is a local chapter of the larger Institute of Healthcare Improvement (IHI) Open School. We represent students across various departments at the University of Toronto, such as nursing, pharmacy, medicine, and public health. 

Our goal is to promote quality improvement (QI) and patient safety by providing students with professional development opportunities through QI projects, conferences, and educational seminars. 

UTIHI is hiring

Join the UTIHI Executive team for the upcoming academic year as we transition into a new chapter, evaluating our programs and working on projects to improve access to Quality Improvement opportunities and education for all students. If you are interested in QI, want to make a positive change, find a network of interested students, and gain experience apply now!

Applications are open to all current University of Toronto students (Graduate and Undergraduate) and are open until October the 7th 12:59 PM. Applications are assessed on a rolling basis.

What We Do

Quality Improvement (QI) projects are opportunities for students to practice applying patient safety and quality improvement principles to real world cases. Students are assigned to multidisciplinary teams with healthcare professionals for seven month placements within the GTA.

UTIHI holds annual conferences to highlight innovation in healthcare from the ways technology is transforming healthcare delivery to the ways entrepreneurship injects new ideas into the field. With industry speakers, workshops, and networking opportunities, these conferences are a wonderful opportunity to learn and gain professional exposure. 

We host accredited interprofessional education seminars in order to promote the type of interdisciplinary collaboration required of healthcare professionals. These seminars address many of the pressing issues faced today, such as medication errors, pain management, and effective resource stewardship.

Sponsors

We are sponsored by North America's leading healthcare organizations.
