Our Quality and Safety Fellowship is designed to prepare fellows for the best career opportunities. Our faculty includes quality/safety leaders and medical education/faculty development experts at OhioHealth. This is a one-year certificate program sponsored by the OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital Department of Graduate Medical Education (GME).
The fellowship is open to physicians who have successfully completed an ACGME or AOA accredited residency program.
The fellows will spend 80% of time in quality improvement/patient safety training and 20% of time in direct patient care of their specialty.
The fellowship consists of didactic sessions and extensive hands-on experiences. The fellows will learn directly from OhioHealth quality improvement and patient safety leaders, as well as faculty development mentors.
Fellowship educational goals include:
When fellows have completed the program, they will be able to:
Miriam Chan, PharmD, CDE
Deep Dive Electives: The fellows should further advance their learning and take a deep dive into one or two areas of interest, with the approval of the fellowship director.
Didactic Training: An innovative, blended learning approach that combines structured online modules with face-to-face, team and individual-based teaching methods and practicums.
Ongoing Hands-on Learning: Participation in quality improvement (QI) and patient safety (PS) programs within the organization, including a capstone project that is aligned with organizational QI/PS priorities and support.
The curriculum can be personalized to support the fellow's strengths and career goals.
The ideal candidate will have completed an ACGME or AOA accredited residency program and will be board certified or board eligible.

Pulmonary and critical care medicine, general internal medicine. I believe it is important to continue to focus on improving the care and safety of patients. This fellowship offered an opportunity to learn the principles of quality improvement and patient safety in order to impact effective change, as well as be involved in medical education and hospital administration.
I am planning on pursuing a pulmonary and critical care fellowship and hope to continue to be involved in medical education and teaching/leading continuous process improvement initiatives.
