The week-long UA Summer Immersion Programme is a deep dive into the world of Healthcare Improvement Science (HIS) and how HIS carries out its mission of accelerating quality improvement in health care. It’s ideal for those passionate about improving patient care in individual organizations and across systems, states and countries. The multicultural perspective and practical orientation in analyzing similar situations in different healthcare contexts will make the difference of this programme.


15 days approximately before starting in Alicante we’ll have a SKYPE MEETING with a brief presentation in which lecturers will share their expectations for this years’ programme and will propose practical activities for students to undertake during the previous weeks before going to Alicante. This activity will last 3 hours.
