The CLARION competition is held each year at the University of Minnesota with the focus on decreasing medical errors by fostering
collaboration among students in multiple health care disciplines. Teams of four students from at least two disciplines are given a case and are charged with creating a root cause analysis. A panel of interprofessional judges evaluates each student team’s presentation and analysis in the context of real world standards of practice.

An MUSC team placed second at the National CLARION Interprofessional Case Competition. MUSC students Katherine Schichtel (Health Administration), Theodore James (Medicine), Jacqueline Pratt (Pharmacy), and Hailey James (Health Administration) represented MUSC at the April 16, 2011, Seventh Annual National CLARION Interprofessional Case competition in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The MUSC team was selected following local competition in which ten MUSC teams competed for first place and the opportunity to represent the University in the national competition. Each team presented findings and made recommendations to improve a fictionalized health care system following a fictionalized adverse patient event. The goal was to learn more about the complexities of the health care system, methods to improve patient safety and reduce medical errors, and interprofessional approaches to health care problems.
