Innovation and improvement

We are seeking healthcare workers to join our 12-month Improvement fellows program.

Improvement fellows will join us on a part-time basis (one day a week) and work collaboratively to support the delivery of a local improvement project and broaden their skills in system change and knowledge of improvement methods. 

The Improvement fellows program grows SCV’s fellowship program which includes clinical and safety fellows.

Our fellowships build health sector skill and capability to lead change and improve healthcare quality and patient safety. We invite you to collaborate with us on priority improvement projects in 2022. 

Who should submit a nomination?
