Global Health Case Competition

Friday, September 25, 2020 - 2:00pm to Friday, October 30, 2020 - 5:00pm
Virtual

Along with the Center for Global Health, the Graduate School of Public Health, the GSC is hosting Pitt's first Global Health Case Competition. The Global Health Case Competition brings together undergraduate and graduate students to gain simulated professional experience, from across Pitt’s campus to form interdisciplinary teams to gain simulated professional experience that develop strategies to address a hypothetical global health scenario. Each team will present their strategy for 15 minutes to a panel of three experts and the top team will receive support to represent Pitt at the 2021 Emory University's International Case Competition. Because global health is an interdisciplinary field,  teams must include a combination of undergraduate, graduate, and professional students from multiple disciplines providing diverse perspectives.

Online Registration

Open from August 25 - 18 September *Please click on Registration Link*
 

Because global health is an interdisciplinary field,  teams must include a combination of undergraduate, graduate, and professional students from multiple disciplines providing diverse perspectives. We require teams of 4 -6 students. Each team must have at least three different Pitt schools/colleges. Students can sign up as an individual (1), as a partial team (2 – 3) or as a team (4 - 6). Partial teams and individuals will be placed on interdisciplinary teams and notified of their teammates the week before the case reveal and first workshop on September 25, 2020. 

There is no cost to participate but each team must put down a $50 deposit. Funds will be returned after the competition is over. If the student does not participate after signing up, the check will not be returned. Mail check to Global Studies Center, University of Pittsburgh, 4100 Posvar Hall,  Pittsburgh, PA 15216.
 
Once the case is released, it is at each team's discretion as to how much time it spends working on its presentation. In addition to attendance at mandatory events the week of the competition, successful teams have found that spending an additional 10-20 hours working together on their project yields optimal results.

 

Please Complete Registration by September 18th 

*All participants should be present for the entire duration of the competition (2 – 6 pm) on October 30, 2020. If a team member is not available the team will be disqualified *
