Univeristy of Arizona: 2017 National CLARION Champions
2019 UAHS Local CLARION Interprofessional Case Competition
Faculty, clinicians, students and community members are invited to attend the 4th annual UAHS CLARION Interprofessional Case Competition.
This elite competition is held in College of Nursing, Room 470 and available for viewing in the Phoenix Biomedical Campus.
The UAHS local competition includes interprofessional teams of UA students, who will present their case analysis to a panel of judges. The winning team of University of Arizona Health Sciences students from the UAHS CLARION Case Competition in early spring 2019 will compete in the National CLARION Interprofessional Case Competition, in mid-April 2019. 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 at the national competition have a chance to win a grand prize of $7,500.
The UAHS local competition was sponsored by the UA Center for Transformative Interprofessional Healthcare, directed by Sally J. Reel, PhD, RN, FNP, FAAN, Associate Vice President for Interprofessional Education, Collaborative Practice and Community Engagement.
