Interdisciplinary Healthcare Case Competition
PROVE YOU’VE GOT THE KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS THAT EMPLOYERS ARE SEEKING IN UP-AND-COMING HEALTH PROFESSIONALS
On January 7th-8th, 2021, Wisconsin Area Health Education Centers (WI AHEC) virtually hosted its 8th annual Interprofessional Case Competition (IPCC). This traditionally in-person event brought together interdisciplinary teams of health professions students across multiple professional schools and programs, both private and public, to develop and present a proposed solution to a healthcare challenge.
Eight teams were selected out of thirteen, all of which competed for a $3,000 first-place cash prize. The finalist teams were judged by a panel comprising of interprofessional leaders within Wisconsin’s healthcare community and represented all seven of the Wisconsin AHEC regions and the state program office.
