Fantastic - thank you so much Aaran. I completely agree that sustainability would fit really well with quality improvement education and it is great to know that students are keen for this! 

We are currently in discussion with a couple of medical schools to work with them on this in the coming academic year. We have been offered financial support from Health Education England, who also recognise the opportunity. So these are exciting times!

You might be interested to read about our approach for bringing sustainable healthcare and quality improvement together at http://sustainablehealthcare.org.uk/susqi 

If any other students on the network have experience of QI teaching with/without sustainable healthcare included, then it would be great to hear your thoughts too.
