The Clinical Quality Fellowship Program (CQFP) supports the training and professional development of early- and mid-career physicians and nurses with the specific purpose of helping them to lead and champion quality improvement and patient safety efforts within their hospitals. Through an intensive 15-month training program, regional leaders in health care quality teach the fellows proven tools and techniques to improve the quality, efficiency, and safety of patient care within their institutions. Participating fellows then bring their new knowledge, skills, and strategies back to their institutions, where they are prepared to take on leadership roles and act as agents of change. Co-led by the United Hospital Fund and the Greater New York Hospital Association, the program is intended to create a lasting infrastructure supporting quality improvement in the greater New York area.
