Thomas Diller, MD, was chosen to be the executive director of the recently launched University of North Texas Health Science Center's Institute for Patient Safety.

In his new role, he will work to advance patient safety education at the institute's collaborating entities in Fort Worth: Texas Christian University, JPS Health Network and Cook Children's Medical Center.

"Dr. Diller is an accomplished clinician and physician executive with extensive experience and knowledge in patient safety, quality improvement and outcomes management," said Michael R.
