A content analysis was performed to investigate core curriculum in master degree programs for patient safety. Twenty programs from six countries and 179 core curriculum/modules were extracted and reviewed. The curricula were compared to the topics recommended in WHO's Multi-professional Patient Safety Curriculum Guide and the core content relevant to patient safety issues in IMIA/AMIA recommendations for health informatics education. The differences between the identified curricula with those addressed in the aforementioned Guide/Recommendations were examined.
