The AMA Health Systems Science Learning Series prepares learners like you to successfully navigate complex health systems, enhance patient care, improve outcomes, and work toward fulfilling the promise of the Quadruple Aim—better patient experience, better population health, lower overall costs, and improved professional satisfaction. This series is the first set of educational activities providing a fundamental understanding of how health care is delivered, how health care professionals work together to deliver that care, and how the health system can improve patient care and health care delivery. Each engaging and interactive module is a vital part of helping medical students and other learners become effective systems citizens. You will receive a grounding in each of the domains of health systems science, positioning you to better care for your patients and your communities.
Along with the basic and clinical sciences, health systems science is rapidly becoming a crucial "third pillar" of medical education, requiring a practical curriculum with an emphasis on understanding the role of systems thinking, leadership, and patient improvement strategies that will help transform the future of health care and ensure greater patient safety.
The Health Systems Science Learning Series has been developed by leading experts from the AMA Accelerating Change in Medical Education Consortium.
