HEALTH & COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

Inter-professional Healthcare Case Competition

  • This annual event hosted by Wisconsin AHEC invites students from any Wisconsin college/university to compete in a case competition, and prove you’ve got the knowledge and skills that employers are seeking in up-and-coming health professionals.
  • Teams will have 2 months to work together on a case study and submit their entry prior to the competition. Each team will conduct an analysis of interprofessional efforts during the care of a patient/client. At the end of the process, your team will present your findings to a panel of judges representing various disciplines in the community of Wisconsin’s healthcare professionals.
