Additional Eligibility Criteria:

As of July 1, 2015, applicants must be either a 3rd or 4th year student in an American medical school.

Pre-Application Information:

In 500-1,000 words, describe the most instructional patient safety event you experienced, one that resulted in a personal transformation. The essay should have an emotional impact on the reader and provide a lesson that is transferable to other medical students and medical professionals.

Please explain how the event impacted your learning and growth and how the experience will help you to provide the safest care to your current and future patients. You must include examples of how to improve any system errors or processes that contributed to the adverse patient event and explain how you will ensure that the changes are implemented.

Description of relevant events for the essay includes any patient safety event, including “near misses”. A patient safety event is a process or an act of omission or commission that results in hazardous health care conditions and/or unintended harm to the patient. The event is often a consequence of a systems failure or error. Examples include medication related errors, communications errors, health care-associated infections, medical record errors, identification errors and delays in responding to critical diagnostics.

Essays must maintain the confidentiality and integrity of the patient and location of the event. Please use fictitious names and locations in the essay.
