Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine
Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine launched a longitudinal curricular innovation to help medical students acquire the knowledge, skills and tools essential for the promotion of patient safety. Planned learning activities begin in the 1st year of medical school, continue during clerkship and culminate with synthesis-level projects in the 1st year of residency.

Poster presented: “First Do No Harm:” Incorporating Patient Safety Concepts Into a Longitudinal Curriculum Bridging Undergraduate Graduate Medical Education
Need/gap addressed: To date, little effort has been made the address the need to educate medical students at the undergraduate level on concepts related to patient safety and quality improvement processes and tools. Also, no effort has been made to use a curriculum that bridges the transition from medical student to resident in such training.
