The Interprofessional Patient Management Competition focuses on promoting interprofessional collaboration among professional students at the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB), allowing them to apply their patient care knowledge and skills to an interprofessional patient case. The patient case is developed through a collaboration of faculty judges from each professional school at the University.
Teams consisting of one student from each school will be given two hours to collectively determine and work up the most critical issues present in the clinical case. The top three teams will be asked to return at a second date to be judged by the faculty panel during oral presentations.
All dental, law, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, physical therapy, and social work students are encouraged to participate.
Here is the schedule, with both sessions at the Pharmacy Hall Atrium, 20 N. Pine St.
- Written round: Monday, April 2, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
- Oral round: Thursday, April 12, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Dinner will be provided for all students on both dates.
Monetary prizes will be provided to the top two teams (no more than seven students per team):
- First place: $75 to each member.
- Second place: $50 to each member.
