Interprofessional teams of students face off in a friendly competition to showcase interprofessional competencies and person-centred care.  Prizes will be awarded to the winning team.

Who can participate, and how?

What is involved?

  • Teams will be provided with information on a case and prepare an interprofessional care plan.
  • At the competition, each team is given additional information about the case and presents to a panel of judges.
  • The case will examine refugee health issues, including determinants of health as well as enablers and barriers to refugees accessing healthcare.
