CLARION Case Competitions 2017

Local competition: March 10, 2018
National competition: April 14, 2018

What is it?

Local and national students form interprofessional teams to enhance their problem analysis and presentation skills. Each team is charged with applying their creativity, knowledge, and experience to analyze the diverse issues facing a healthcare organization. Presentations are made to a panel of judges representing leaders in the healthcare field and scholarships are presented to each member of the winning 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place Local & National teams.

How can you help? The spring case competition may not be taking place until March 2017, but the planning has already begun! Because CLARION hosts many local and national teams at the competitions there are many logistics that need to be determined. Therefore, there are many roles that volunteers can help to fulfill. A large part of the work occurs in February and March, but we welcome volunteers throughout the year. Please contact Katie Hamilton at for more information.
