“The Summit student program will help create awareness
[of improvement science] in students before they graduate
and enter the workforce.”
- Lily Thomas, PhD, RN, Vice President,
System Nursing Research, North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System,
ISRN Steering Council Member

The 2013 Improvement Science Summit, the official conference of the Improvement Science Research Network (ISRN), will hold its second annual student program. Last year, nearly 25 undergraduate and graduate students interested in improvement science attended the student program. The program was centered on building capacity and knowledge of improvement science to prepare future scientists in the field. Students from across the country and leading experts in quality improvement met for an interesting dialogue. “The student program was an incredible opportunity to discuss cutting-edge topics and research presented by renowned speakers,” says student program attendee Tom Methvin.

Improvement science is a topic of great importance, both in the clinical and academic setting. Students from both clinical programs and health administration programs are urged to participate in the student program to learn from each other and build collaborations for future work.

The student program was endorsed fully by the ISRN Steering Council, including Dr. Lily Thomas, PhD, RN, Vice President, System Nursing Research, North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System. “The Summit student program will help create awareness [of improvement science] in students before they graduate and enter the workforce,” said Dr. Thomas. “This level of engagement and dialogue is not something typically afforded at a conference,” continues Tom Methvin. “I am very grateful for the advice I was able to garner from the distinguished panelists.  Every student aspiring to enter the healthcare field should attend this conference!”
