Cleveland Clinic Case Competition
April 09, 2021
The Cleveland Clinic Case Competition is designed to offer graduate level students in health administration the opportunity to apply their coursework to a real-world situation and develop recommendations to a team of executives at an internationally recognized health system. Participants are given a weekend to develop recommendations to be reviewed by a team of Cleveland Clinic physicians and administrators. Students from top masters programs across the country are invited to participate in the event.
The event is designed to offer MHA, MPH, MHSA and MBA (healthcare focus) students the ability to translate academic concepts into solutions addressing an issue within one of the nation’s foremost healthcare organizations.
