The Health Care Team Challenge™ is a popular annual event. Before a live audience, two teams of students from 10 – 12 different disciplines work together on a clinical case study designed by faculty members. The case is given to them just a few days prior to the Challenge. As new developments in the case are revealed the two teams will be challenged, individually and as a team, to demonstrate best practices in patient care and the effectiveness of interprofessional collaboration in a clinical setting. The Challenge provides a stimulating and fun exercise for students, faculty and audience.
The HCTC™ model was originally pioneered by educators at the University of British Columbia over 20 years ago. Dr. Christie Newton, the HCTC™ Planning Committee Chair at UBC, comments on its sustainability; “its extracurricular format provides a safe opportunity for students to interact without the pressure of academia. Also, the event timing over lunch hour negates the need to align with the 12 to 15 different health professional curricula.”
