Abstract

Purpose: To develop a patient safety curriculum and evaluate its impact on medical students' safety knowledge, self-efficacy and system thinking. Methods: This study reports on curriculum development and evaluation of a 3-day, clinically oriented patient safety intersession that was implemented at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in January 2011. Using simulation, skills demonstrations, small group exercises and case studies, this intersession focuses on improving students' teamwork and communication skills and system-based thinking while teaching on the causes of preventable harm and evidence-based strategies for harm prevention. One hundred and twenty students participated in this intersession as part of their required second year curriculum. A preepost assessment of students' safety knowledge, selfefficacy in safety skills and system-based thinking was conducted. Student satisfaction data were also collected. Results: Students' safety knowledge scores significantly improved (mean +19% points; 95% CI 17.0 to 21.6; p
