MedStar Sets National Precedent with Patient Safety First Training for all New Residents
National Patient Safety Advocate Helen Haskell joined MedStar Health in welcoming more than 300 new residents this June with a three-day intensive bootcamp rooted in patient safety and high reliability principles.
MedStar Health hospitals, collectively, have one of the largest graduate medical education programs in the country, training 1,100 medical residents annually and offering training in nearly 100 specialty and sub-specialty programs. MedStar is also the medical education and clinical partner of Georgetown University. Approximately 25 percent of the Georgetown’s graduating class is matched into MedStar residency and fellowships.
