UIC offers two online Patient Safety Leadership programs:

  • Master of Science in Patient Safety Leadership


  • Graduate Certificate in Essentials in Healthcare Safety and Quality


The admissions requirements for the two programs are very similar. International applicants must also submit proof of English language proficiency.

If you meet the admissions requirements, you may apply for either program. Courses completed for the graduate certificate program may be applied to the MS program.

While you can submit your application for any term at any time, there are preferred application deadlines. Early applications are encouraged.

I am more influential with leadership now that I have a solid foundation of the history and concepts of patient safety.
