What is HPSC? We are happy to explain...
The UIC Health Professions Student Council (HPSC) is a liaison organization between the individual health professions students, student groups, and the university at large. We appoint students to university and campus-wide committees to represent the interest of the health professional student body. Additionally, we fund the individual health professional student councils and provide additional funding to students for travel and interdisciplinary projects. In recent years, our student-ran organization has also provided a forum for interdisciplinary discourse through our Collaborative Healthcare Series.
Yesterday, HPSC held an informational session about our interprofessional lecture series that we offer to all students. To view the slides that were presented, see the PowerPoint attachment below.

HPSC is excited to announce our next Collaborative Healthcare Series event. On Wednesday, January 22, we will be hosting an emergency scenario simulation event at the College of Nursing.
Participants will be placed on a team with other health professions students and go through a number of scenarios. The scenarios are meant to simulate common emergencies that could present in the healthcare setting or during everyday activities.
Dinner will be provided, prizes will be awarded to the highest scoring team, and we will raffle off prizes for registered participants. Please sign up using the RSVP link below or by scanning the QR Code. More information will be provided to participants before the event.
HPSC has recently had an issue with students being unsure about submitting a grant application if their abstract is in the process of being accepted for an event.
Please be sure to contact the HPSC treasurer (email@example.com) BEFORE the quarterly deadline if this scenario applies to you. We will not accept late submissions that were past the deadline because the student was unsure about the status of his or her abstract.
