Center for Patient Safety Science
The Center for Patient Safety Science is bringing together cutting-edge programs in research, education, and implementation to help us invent the future of quality and patient safety not only at Columbia but nationally. I have every confidence that the remarkable team we are assembling at VP&S will succeed in developing the next generation of best practices. This is an enormously exciting moment for all of us involved in this field.
