Allison Bucheger, Health Education & Health Promotion student, received a third-place award at the statewide interprofessional case competition at Wisconsin AHEC Hosts 9th Annual Interprofessional Case Competition on Jan. 6, online. A student team from UW-LaCrosse, Medical College of Wisconsin, and UW-Madison studying various health fields earned $1,000 for winning third place at a statewide interprofessional case competition organized by Wisconsin AHEC (Area Health Education Centers) in January. Third place team members representing South Central AHEC: Allison Bucheger (Community Health Education, UWL), Heun Min (Medicine, Medical College of Wisconsin), Kalley Carlson (Public Health, University of Wisconsin-Madison), Sarah Uhm (Public Health, University of Wisconsin-Madison), Janani Sundar (Medicine, University of Wisconsin-Madison). The student team competed online virtually against eight finalist teams chosen from 17 that applied. The teams, made up of students studying healthcare disciplines from public and private universities across the state. The student teams were assigned a case study of a complicated situation, and each team worked together for two months to conduct an analysis of interprofessional efforts during the care of a patient/client within the community. The top teams virtually presented their recommendations for enhanced interprofessional collaboration to a panel of judges. 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 17, 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.
