2017 CLARION Interprofessional Case Competition

Results of the 2017 UAHS Local CLARION Interprofessional Case Competition

The winning team of University of Arizona Health Sciences students from the UAHS CLARION Case Competition on February 28 will compete in the National CLARION Interprofessional Case Competition, April 7 – 8.  The team will travel on a funded trip to Minneapolis, MN to represent UAHS.  UAHS is one of 16 universities across the nation participating in this elite competition, which is designed to encourage communication among disciplines, especially early on in the careers of health-care professionals, so the values may be carried into practice after graduation. The case competition is an opportunity for students to gain clinical and operational knowledge that may not otherwise be received through their formal education. Finalists will have a chance to win a grand prize of $7,500.
