IHI Basic Certificate in Quality and Safety
Through the Institute for Healthcare Improvement's Open School, anyone is able to enroll in and complete online courses that offer more than 35 continuing education credits for nurses, physicians, and pharmacists.
A highlight of this online education platform is the 'crash-course' introduction to Quality Improvement (QI) work called the Basic Certificate in Quality and Safety -- it is a highly recommended first step for QI training, which will develop your literacy of the field and provide you fundamental tools to begin thinking and applying your skills like a quality improvement professional.
Passport to Education
**NOTE: Only open to UBC students and alumni enrolled in health degrees**
The Interprofessional Education (IPE) Passport is an online tool that enables you to register for and keep track of your interprofessional learning. The Passport provides a comprehensive list of the IPE activities available to UBC. These activities will help you meet your interprofessional collaborative competencies and further your knowledge and understanding of interprofessional, patient-centred collaborative practice. The Passport can be used to demonstrate that you have completed the IPE requirements of your program.
