The Whiting School and Johns Hopkins Institute for Clinical and Translational Research are pairing engineering with clinicians in an effort to solve patient safety issues as part of the new Engineering Collaborative for Patient Safety.

Last fall, teams of students in the Center for Leadership Education’s Master of Science in Engineering Management program partnered with clinicians at The Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality, The Johns Hopkins Home Care Group, The Institute for Clinical and Translational Research, The Welch Center for Prevention, Epidemiology and Clinical Research, and The Johns Hopkins Hospital Clinical Engineering Services to identify potential patient safety issues and to offer engineering solutions.
