Health Fusion

The Australian HealthFusion Team Challenge (Oz HFTC) brings together the top interprofessional student healthcare teams from around Australia.

The event involves interprofessional teams of 4 - 6 health sciences students representing their respective University or Student Organisation.

In 2017, the Oz HFTC will be extended to a 2-day intensive program which incorporates a Sunday workshop and mentor session and a Monday competition.

On Day 1, all teams will receive the same complex case study and will then be tasked with working together over the course of the day to prepare a 5-minute presentation outlining their treatment plan. The Day 1 program will include mentor sessions and group work time as well as some team building activities.

On Day 2, the competition gets underway in front of a live audience and panel of expert judges. Teams will present their treatment plans before taking part in a full day program of extension questions and team building activities designed to test teamwork skills under pressure. The top 3 teams will progress to the Finals after lunch.

At the conclusion of Day 2, an overall winner for 2017 will be announced , along with the Runners Up and Audience Choice awards.

Who Can Enter?

The Oz HFTC welcomes teams from Australian and New Zealand universities, as well as "Wild Card" teams from international universities and all student associations/groups.

Participants must be enrolled in a health sciences or related program of study during 2017 to be eligible (either full or part time).
