Interprofessional Healthcare Case Competition Overview:

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 two months to work together on a case study and submit their entry prior to the competition event. 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.
