Healthcare Case Competition

The annual statewide Healthcare Case Competition sponsored by Wisconsin AHEC (Area Health Education Center) is now enrolling teams for the Fall 2016 competition with a chance to advance to the final round held in the WI Dells in January 2017. Cash prizes are awarded to the top three teams ($3,000, $2,000, $1,000). Unlike many parts of the state, here in Madison a student organization (Interprofessional Health Council) helps to match individual students in any major onto teams so that they can get connected with other majors/disciplines and put together a strong team to enter the competition. (See below for contact info.) Additional details about AHEC’s interprofessional healthcare case competition are online at: https://ahec.wisc.edu/ip-competitions.htm Keri Robbins, MS.Ed Assistant Director, Wisconsin AHEC Program 4218c Health Sciences Learning Center | UW School of Medicine and Public Health Keri.robbins@wisc.edu | 608.265.2442 | http://www.ahec.wisc.edu | http://www.facebook.com/WisconsinAHEC
