IHI Open School featured in The Boston Globe's health blog

Ishani Ganguli, a third-year student at Harvard Med, blogs this week about the IHI Open School's first Chapter Congress:

On Saturday, I observed a rare convergence of health professional students outside hospital walls.

It was the first annual face-to-face meeting of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement's Open School for Health Professions -- a hub of online courses, case studies, and discussion forums that empowers students to work on quality improvement issues. The school launched last fall and has already registered 9,000 students, with more than 78 school and hospital-based chapters in 25 states and 10 countries, director Jill Duncan told me.

Check out Ishani's full post on Short White Coat, a blog about learning to be a doctor. It's hosted by The Boston Globe's White Coat Notes health blog.
