Abstract Since the first edition of this textbook was published in 2017, health systems science has increasingly become integrated into medical education. Competency in this realm ensures that medical school graduates and those graduating from other health school professions schools can effectively translate and apply the basic and clinical sciences and meaningfully improve patients' health at the individual, community, and population levels. Developed by the American Medical Association's Accelerating Change in Medical Education Consortium, Health Systems Science is the first text that focuses on providing a fundamental understanding of how health care is delivered, how health care professionals work together to deliver that care, and how the health system can improve patient care and health care delivery. Along with basic and clinical science, Health Systems Science (HSS) is rapidly becoming a crucial "third pillar" of medical science, requiring a practical, standardized curriculum with an emphasis on understanding the role of human factors, systems engineering, leadership, and patient improvement strategies that will help transform the future of health care and ensure greater patient safety.
