HSSA Health Care Team Challenge

The Health Care Team ChallengeTM (HCTC) is an interprofessional student team event. Each student team is provided the same case to work on, with the goal of developing a collaborative interprofessional patient/client-centered plan of management. On the day of the event, student teams present their plans to an audience of clinicians, academics, community members and students. Teams are judged on both the quality of the management plan and the level of team collaboration.

The Health Care Team Challenge is based on a three-part clinical case. Teams are provided part one of the case one week before the challenge, allowing them time to discuss the case and create an interdisciplinary care plan for the patient. Teams are encouraged to research around their cases and consult a clinician or faculty member if needed. The Part II and the Part III will be released on the day of the competition.

More information will be released to HCTC participants. If you have other questions or concerns, please contact Dillon Lee (dillon1@ualberta.ca)
