Vinnvård Improvement Science Fellows

Vinnvård is launching a new fellowship programme within the field of improvement science. The objective of this new programme is to increase strategic knowledge about improvement strategies in the Swedish healthcare sector. The programme is a collaborative effort with the Health Foundation Improvement Science Fellowships.

Paul B Batalden, MD, Professor of Pediatrics, Dartmouth Medical School and The Improvement Science Development Group, Health Foundation, says:

- Sweden is lucky! I had the chance to listen and have conversation with the outstanding individuals who were in the final round of applicants applying for the new Swedish Improvement Scientist Fellowships. As individuals, the group would have made any country proud. Our conversations were far-reaching: from personal history to project research design. We listened carefully to each other. This cohort of improvement science fellows is unmatched. Congratulations to all!
