WHAT IS THE UNC HEALTHCARE CASE COMPETITION?

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! This year, graduate students from several other leading 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 in Chapel Hill, NC—providing additional networking opportunities and a chance to attend workshops and panels led by industry leaders.

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 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 travel to UNC Kenan-Flagler Business school to present their case solution. The competition will be judged by an interdisciplinary panel of healthcare industry experts.
