The Fall 2019 Interprofessional Geriatric Case Competition is now accepting registrations from all health-related programs.
Each student will collaborate with a team of 4-5 health professions students to create a plan of care for a complex older patient with multiple, chronic health challenges. The team will then create an innovative 20-minute case presentation and compete against other teams.
To enter the Competition, send an email with your name, discipline/program and year to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 27, 2019.
The Orientation will be held at 5:30 p.m. in Rooms 112-113 of the Learning Resources Center, 3545 Vista Avenue. The team assignments will be revealed there and you will receive a copy of this year’s case, as well as the Geriatric Case Competition Manual.
Each team will present their Care Plan on Monday, October 28, 2019 at the Learning Resources Center, with each team allotted a 30-minute time slot between 5:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. The judging panel is comprised of faculty from the various disciplines represented by the teams.
