Students with the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center placed first in the CLARION National Case Study Competition, with three students receiving a $7,500 scholarship.

CLARION, led by the University of Minnesota, is a competition where teams from different health care professions across the nation work to solve a fictional health care problem.

Jessica Kirkenall and Connor Larson, both first-year nursing students, and Michael Song, a second-year medical student, were awarded with the Premier Richard Norling Scholarship for their work with CLARION.

“Our students clearly demonstrated at nationals that TTUHSC has quality faculty who can provide students with the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for today’s complex health care systems,” Cindy Acton, course facilitator, said in a statement. “There is no doubt in my mind that through TTUHSC’s interprofessional education initiatives, TTUHSC graduates will take leading roles in creating better health care systems.”
