CLARION 2023 - In-Person!

We are excited to share that CLARION will host the competition in-person this year, on the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities campus! We are thrilled to reconnect with teams face-to-face. This competition will be similar to years past, with an enhanced experience as we incorporate engaging activities with our state-of-the-art Health Sciences Education Center (HSEC), collaborating with campus partners such as MSimulation and the Health Sciences Libraries. CLARION is thrilled this year to be partnering with the Community-University Health Care Center (CUHCC) to develop this year's case. CUHCC is a Federally Qualified Healthcare Center whose mission is Transforming Care and Education to Advance Health Equity.

Teams may begin registering for in-person competition on Tuesday, November 1st at 8:00am CDT.

Lodging:
A block of rooms have been held for teams at the Graduate Hotel, located across the street from the competition. Use the following link to reserve: Graduate Minneapolis | Hotel in the Heart of UMN Campus (graduatehotels.com)

Team Composition and Rules

Four students per team - no more than two students from the same profession.

Each institution participating is only allowed to send one team.

Must represent at least two different health professions (see examples below) and no more than 2 of the same professions on each team:

  • Healthcare Administration
  • Medicine
  • Nursing
  • Pharmacy
  • Dentistry
  • Public Health
  • Physical Therapy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Social Work

*If you have a prior health professional degree, you are able to participate. However, you are only representing the current program you are enrolled in (e.g., A nurse completing a Master of Public Health would represent Public Health, not nursing) 

Participants can be full-time or part-time students at the institution they represent. Please note: Full-time students who are also employed in professional leadership positions are not eligible to compete. Exceptions will be reviewed by the CLARION Executive Board on an individual basis.

Participants may only compete once (applies to both local and national competitions). Teams must be comprised of new participants annually. National participants can send only one team to the competition.

Team members will share the entire prize as listed.
