The UNC Healthcare Case Competition is an interdisciplinary event designed to leverage students’ unique learning, development, and career experiences by challenging them to develop an innovative solution to a relevant healthcare issue. This is a great venue for graduate students to showcase their leadership, critical thinking, creativity, and network with other future healthcare leaders—in addition to winning a prize! Graduate students from top-tier universities (to be confirmed) across the United States will be invited to participate.

The case competition also provides an opportunity for finalist teams from participating universities to attend UNC’s annual Healthcare Conference (held virtually this year)—providing additional networking opportunities and a chance to attend workshops and panels led by industry leaders.

Registration is now open HERE!

 

Am I eligible to participate?

Graduate students across disciplines (business, public health, pharmacy, medicine, nursing, dentistry, etc.) are encouraged to participate. Each team must have 4-5 graduate students with at least two disciplines represented (dual-degree students may fulfill this requirement).

 

How is the case competition structured?

The UNC Healthcare Case Competition will include two virtual rounds:

  • Internal Round – UNC will host its own internal competition to identify its finalist team. If preferred, other universities may nominate their finalist team without hosting an internal competition.
  • Final External Round – One finalist team from each participating university will present their case solution. The competition will be judged by an interdisciplinary panel of healthcare industry experts.
