The 2018 HealthFusion Team Challenge dates will be announced in early in the new year. We hope you'll join us!

The Australian HealthFusion Team Challenge (Oz HFTC) is an annual event, which 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.

The Oz HFTC has been extended to a 2-day intensive program which incorporates a 1-day workshop and mentor session and a 1-day competition.

On Day 1, all teams receive the same complex case study and are then 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 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 is 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).
