The Student or Teacher Scholarship

The International Forum is pleased to offer a limited amount of scholarships for students in full time education and teachers.

The Programme

Each year, the IHI Open School organizes a set of events and opportunities for likeminded students, junior doctors, and faculty from around the world to network and work together to build their quality and safety skills and knowledge.

We hope you’ll join us for this year’s student programme, detailed below – just be sure to register for them here by 1 May!

Grab your lunch and join the IHI Open School and fellow attendees to spend time networking with and learning from peers, as you share your experiences, your vision for the future of health care, and what
you hope to take home with you from the conference.

Night Forum: PDSA Cycle Bowling (18:00 – 21:00)
