About the Competition
The Case Competition offers an innovative student learning experience that trains future public health leaders. This competition brings together students from multiple disciplines in a format uncommon at most universities and colleges. Through the friendly competition, students creatively address critical global health challenges in a competitive and collaborative environment that simulates future workplace settings by requiring a multidisciplinary team composition.
The aim of the Global Public Health Case Competition is to train the next generation of leaders through a unique competition experience built upon a real‐world challenge. All students at the University of Iowa are eligible to compete, including all degree levels. Teams are made up of three to five students from colleges and departments across the university, applying their specific knowledge to tackle complex global issues. The most effective teams will learn to leverage the unique skills and knowledge of each team member and discipline represented.
Competition Planning Team
The case competition is made possible due to efforts by the Iowa Institute for Public Health Research and Policy (IIPHRP), the Global Public Health Initiative, and the College of Public Health Research Office.
