Event Status
As Scheduled
Multiple Presenters

Pitt’s Global Health Case Competition is designed to give Pitt students from all campuses professional experience in developing innovative 21st century solutions and strategies to address a real-world global health issue. 
Interdisciplinary teams of 4 to 6 graduate and undergraduate students will develop a plan to address a scenario in a holistic way based on information garnered during a series of presentations by experts along with a comprehensive library guide prepared specifically for the case study. Each team will present its strategy to a panel of experts, with the top team receiving cash prizes and support to participate in the 2023 Emory Morningside Global Health Case Competition.
Students participating in the competition have the option of earning 1-credit either at the undergraduate or graduate level (depending on their status.) The course must be added before the add/drop period, September 7, 2022 (course number: BCHS 2511-1001).
The case competition is sponsored by the School of Public Health’s Center for Global Studies, Global Health Student Association, the Center for Bioethics & Health Law, and Pitt’s Global Studies Center. 
For the last two years Pitt’s winning team went on to place 3rd out of over 50 teams at Emory University’s global competition.  View the 2022 first and second place presentations at Pitt’s competition here.
