The curriculum builds leadership and practice-based skill as students evaluate and apply evidence-based practice, explore methodology relevant to clinical practice inquiry, and evaluate organizational and systems impact on practice change, health policy, patient advocacy, quality improvement and safety across diverse populations and within inter-professional care teams.
