Emory Morningside Global Health Case Competition
March 19, 2022

The International Emory Global Health Case Competition is a unique opportunity for graduate and undergraduate students from multiple universities and disciplines to come together to learn about, develop, and recommend innovative solutions for a 21st century global health problem. Our international global health case competition brings together students from around the world, and it is always a pleasure hosting your case competition teams on the Emory University campus.

Description
The Emory Global Health Institute (EGHI) will host its 2021 International Emory Global Health Case Competition virtually. The competition will take place March 13 - 21, 2021. EGHI will virtually host one Emory team and up to 59 multidisciplinary student teams from universities around the world. While we can't bring teams together on the Emory University campus this year due to continued COVID-19-related safety concerns, EGHI promises to provide multidisciplinary student teams a great global health case challenge, opportunities to network with each other and professionals from numerous fields, and the chance to win cash prizes!

Applications will be accepted from Monday, October 26 at 12:00 pm eastern time until Monday, November 16 at 10:00 pm eastern time. The first 59 teams to apply will be accepted into the competition. Universities that apply after the first 59 teams will be placed on a waiting list if desired.

Who is Eligible to Apply?
One multidisciplinary student team per university is eligible to participate in the International Emory Global Health Case Competition. Student teams should be comprised of four-to-six members, and team members should be enrolled in at least three different schools or disciplines at their university. Teams are allowed to have one member who is a post-doctoral fellow and/or medical resident, however, this is not required. Universities are not required to have their team members identified during the application period. Once universities are accepted into the competition, individual team member information will be due February 26, 2021.

Case Subject
A team of Emory student and faculty case writers are working on the 2021 case subject. While we will not reveal the case until March 13, it will provide a realistic global health challenge whose solutions will require a multidisciplinary approach. To read past case subjects, visit EGHI's website.

Competition Format and Deliverables
The competition will be completely virtual and have two rounds. During the first round of the competition, teams will be required to submit a one-page executive summary and a 10-minute video of their case solution. Unlike in past International Emory Global Health Case Competitions, there will be no streams that teams participate in during the first round. Teams with the 10 highest first-round scores will receive a cash prize. Teams with the six highest first-round scores will advance to the final round of the competition. These six final-round teams will be required to incorporate a case twist into their final-round presentations. Finalist teams will present virtual, live 10-minute presentations and engage in five minutes of Q&A with judges. All deliverables must be in English.
