IHI Open School in the Media!

If the IHI Open School was a celebrity, we haven't quite reached Paris Hilton, Jennifer Aniston, Brangelina, Lindsay Lohan, or even First Dog Bo type coverage in the media, but we are well on our way!

In the AMA (American Medical Association) Monday, May 4th issue of American Medical News at, Kevin O'Reilly writes about the IHI Open School. Click here to read! Featured in the article is the University of Chicago's IHI Open School Chapter led by Caitlin Schaninger. Also mentioned in the article are Jill Duncan, IHI Open School Director, Dr. Vineet Arora, faculty advisor to the University of Chicago IHI Open School Chapter, and Dr. David Mayer, Associate Dean at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Chicago. Congratulations!

The IHI Open School is also mentioned in the May/June issue of Healthcare Executive magazine. Click here to read. In this piece, I discuss how health professions students are unwilling to accept adverse events and inefficiencies as inevitable characteristics of the health care system.

Please let us know if you see the IHI Open School in the media. Who knows, perhaps by the end of the year we could overtake Bo for a top spot!
