The Institute for Healthcare Improvement's (IHI) new Open School initiative is an opportunity for students and healthcare workers to supplement or expand their education through a network of those interested in improvement. The IHI Open School offers a variety of online courses and aims to connect students, faculty, and practitioners through campus chapters. Though Clemson does not have a medical school, there are a variety of majors, projects and research that focus on healthcare improvement around campus. Clemson's chapter of the Open School aims to engage multiple, non-traditional disciplines to discuss healthcare improvement and create a network of similar interests across campus. Clemson's chapter is supported by the South Carolina Hospital Association as well as administrators and clinicians at local facilities that further extends students' networking as well as volunteer opportunities.
