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!

The University of Alberta Health Sciences Students’ Association (HSSA) would like to invite you to attend and participate in our annual Alberta Interprofessional Conference (AIC) on March 21 and 22, 2015 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
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. Our theme this year, The Future of Health Care, will focus on the changing practices in health care, the move towards increasing collaboration between disciplines, and different technologies and policies to promote these changes.
