AIC is a conference that brings together students, faculty and health professionals of all health sciences backgrounds from all over Alberta to learn about and discuss recent advancements in healthcare from an interdisciplinary point of view. It is a one-of-a-kind event organized by students, for students to give them the opportunity to learn, teach, and collaborate with other healthcare professionals in the province.  This year we will be co-hosting our event with the Nursing Undergraduate Association (NUA), and our theme is Global Health Care: Home and Abroad.  Our goal is to focus on healthcare issues on a global scale while also linking these topics to healthcare in our own country and communities.

Health Care Team Challenge: November 7th, 2015!

The Health Care Team Challenge™ is an interprofessional student team competition that puts your clinical knowledge and interprofessional teamwork skills to the test!

How it works:
All teams will be provided the same case stem two weeks before the competition. Teams will meet, discuss the case, prepare a care plan, and present it on the day of the event – easy, right?

But patient care is never simple, and as their health and circumstances change, so must the care we provide. Subsequent parts of the case will be given at the competition, encouraging on-the-spot problem solving, collaboration, decision making, and a healthy dose of improvisation.

Teams are allowed to research their cases and consult a clinician or faculty advisor if needed.

Registration: (Team or Individual) 

Apply here by October 23 before 11:59 p.m!
