We believe in nurturing and developing the next generation of healthcare educators and learners through a holistic and lifelong education in Quality and Safety. As educators, we need to constantly reinvent ourselves to remain relevant and more effective in an increasingly evolving and digitalised healthcare system. It is important for leading academic medical centres to be adept and understand the learning needs of healthcare professionals to create a holistic Quality and Safety Education in this digital age.
