We have read Nair et al’s recent article1 with great interest, on the medical student perspective of quality improvement (QI) teaching at medical school. We agree that through improved teaching and engagement, medical students would become enabled
to carry out their own QI projects. As fellow medical students, we would like to offer our perspective on how this could be implemented into the curriculum to ensure that it is a part of the key skill set of every student.
