In-Person and Virtual
Sponsored by the Global Studies Center and the Center for Bioethics & Health Law, Pitt’s Global Health Case Competition is designed to give students simulated professional experience in developing strategies to address a real-world global health issue.
Interdisciplinary teams of graduate and undergraduate students will develop a plan to address the scenario in a holistic way. Each team will present its strategy to a panel of experts, with the top team receiving cash prizes and support to participate in the 2022 Emory Morningside Global Health Case Competition. The case competition is sponsored by the Graduate School of Public Health’s Center for Global Studies and Global Health Student Association and Pitt’s Global Studies Center.
Last year Pitt’s winning team went on to place 3rd out of 53 teams at Emory University’s global competition. View the 2021 first and second place presentations at Pitt’s competition here.
