Analytics Leadership in Patient Safety Program

The Analytics Leadership in Patient Safety (ALPS) program is a nine-month elective cohort training program that aims to train future leaders to apply advanced clinical analytics to transform the safety and quality of care. Open to employees within Johns Hopkins Medicine, this hands-on program trains participants in the technologies deployed at Johns Hopkins Medicine for analytics as well the theories and methodologies related to health care data compilation, analysis and use. ALPS fellows will work closely with a mentor and are expected to complete original projects, evaluate their impact upon clinical practice, and submit a manuscript of their findings to a peer-reviewed journal.

Participants must be able to devote six weeks of time over the course of the yearlong program. The yearly tuition for the program is $3,500 and may be covered by the sponsoring department.

Quotes from Past Participants

“Joining a multidisciplinary cohort of like-minded professionals to expand your network and gain a broader understanding of some of the most exciting analytics projects at JHM. The multidisciplinary nature is not only clinical, but also a healthy and complimentary mix of clinicians, analysts, business managers, and technical professionals. Enjoying weekly one hour sessions with salient topics, and also having the opportunity to gain feedback from the group on your own projects.” – Kelly Daley, ‘14
