Improving patient safety is one of the most urgent issues facing the healthcare industry today, but most medical schools have not taught patient safety as a science or provided new clinicians with the communication skills they need to work effectively with team members and patients. Recently, numerous universities and colleges have expanded their patient safety course and degree offerings to better prepare their students to promote a culture of patient safety.
