Last year, three students revived The University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth’s Institute for Healthcare Improvement Open School Chapter, or IHI.

An IHI Open School Chapter is a face-to-face group of students who work together to learn and apply skills in quality, safety and leadership. The shared goal of the group is to improve health and health care safety. Every IHI Open School Chapter is unique. Academic chapters are led by students and residents representing a variety of health professional programs at a university.
