Summer Patient Safety Research Intensive

Systems, Leadership, Integration, and Management (SLIM) is a unique program designed to provide Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons (VP&S) medical students with the background knowledge and essential problem-solving skills to become agents of health system transformation. Jason Adelman, MD, Chief Patient Safety Officer at NYP/Columbia University Irving Medical Center is the faculty adviser for the SLIM program. The SLIM Summer Patient Safety Research Intensive is an 10-week program where Columbia medical students have the opportunity to develop patient safety research projects or contribute to ongoing projects, examine data sets to answer salient research questions, work with experienced researchers, statisticians, and programmers, and author or co-author a manuscript for publication. SLIM Summer Patient Safety Research Students will receive a $3,500 stipend for the summer.
