Emory Morningside Global Health Case Competition
March 18, 2023

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.

The Emory Morningside Global Health Case Competition brings together students from diverse disciplines and multiple countries to address a real-world global health challenge. The 2023 competition will take place from March 10 to 18, 2023.

Student teams will have one week to develop comprehensive case solutions to a hypothetical but realistic global health challenge. The teams will then present their case solutions to an external panel of judges on competition day.

This year’s event will be held in person. Only one team per university may participate.

Students will compete on the Emory University campus in Atlanta, Ga., with EGHI providing food, lodging, and ground transportation between the Atlanta airport and the Emory Conference Center and Hotel. Student team members or their universities will be responsible for their travel costs to and from Atlanta. EGHI will provide travel assistance to a limited number of student teams from universities located in countries with low-income economies.

EGHI promises to provide student teams with an exciting challenge, the chance to get to know teams from around the world, and the opportunity to network with case advisors from a wide variety of professional fields.

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.

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.
