Disaster Day

What is Disaster Day?

Disaster Day is the nation's largest student-led interprofessional emergency response simulation. Interprofessional student teams come together to diagnose, treat and care for volunteer "patients and populations." Participating students are better prepared to respond to emergencies, and learn vital skills to practice collaboratively upon graduation.

When is Disaster Day?

February 25, 2022, will be the events' 14th anniversary and will be held at Disaster City in College Station.  The Office of Interprofessional Education & Research (IPER) invites all TAMU Health colleges to participate in this interprofessional event.

Why Disaster Day Matters

In these Disaster Day scenarios, we come all together and we allow the students to interact and learn from each other, and see the skills that each health professional can bring. These are the activities that really help prepare the workforce of the future.
