The Healthcare Improvement Capstone Experience is a required course in the Value-Driven Healthcare pathway. In this course, students will utilize concepts and tools they learned in preceding courses and contribute to ongoing quality improvement (QI) efforts. In collaboration with a project sponsor, they will work with experts in the healthcare environment here at the University of Utah Health and/or its affiliates on a local QI project. Students will work directly with their project sponsors and additionally meet periodically with course instructors through regular coaching sessions. All students will be required to present their work with a written summary and oral presentation of their efforts. Students who wish to and are able to continue their efforts beyond the semester may do so at the discretion of their sponsor.
