How to Apply


‚ÄčIdeal Candidates and Selection Criteria
ITP participants should spend substantial time each week in a clinical practice, unit, or program on the CU Anschutz Medical Campus. Candidates may be physicians, nurses, pharmacists, administrators, or other staff with a clinical role, and should possess limited/no formal training in quality improvement. 


Candidates must obtain supervisor support, including clearly outlined non-clinical time to attend the entire, one-day educational session.

Because ITP focuses on practical skills needed to enhance local quality improvement initiatives, we strongly prefer applicants from a care area or clinical program in which active, well-designed improvement initiatives are being guided by formally designated leaders.
