Patient safety has become a national topic since a 1999 Institute of Medicine report estimated that medical errors kill almost 100,000 people per year. Follow-up surveys of medical schools found that young doctors in training did not feel they received enough in-depth education in patient safety. In response to this issue, the WHO (World Health Organization) developed a patient safety curriculum to be taught in medical schools. UCF College of Medicine was invited to become a pilot site for evaluation of the patient safety curriculum along with 10 medical schools in countries across the world.
