Welcome EMGHCC Teams!
Dr. Rebecca Martin, Director of the Emory Global Health Institute and Vice President for Global Health at Emory University, welcomes the 2022 Emory Morningside Global Health Case Competition student teams, which are representing 44 universities located in 15 countries and six continents. Have a great EMGHCC experience!
Below is a list of resources in alphabetical order that will aid your case solution preparation and provide a quick reference for competition logistics. The remaining unlinked resources will be uploaded in the coming weeks. The videos below were recorded for the 2021 Emory Global Health Case Competitions, but remain relevant for this year's competition.
2022 Intramural Emory Global Health Case Competition Finalists Below are the slide decks for the second and third place finishers of the 2022 Intramural Emory Global Health Case Competition. These slide decks were designed for 10-minute presentations. We are not sharing the slide deck for the 1st place team because that Emory team is participating in this competition.
2021 Emory Morningside Global Health Case Competition Finalist Teams (First-Round Video Presentations) Please note that these are 10-minute videos that the teams produced as their first-round deliverables, not videos of their 10-minute final-round presentations. The deliverables for the 2022 competition are live presentations, not videos. However, these videos may be helpful as they give you examples of what good case solutions look like.
2020 International Emory Global Health Case Competition Finalist Presentations Please note that these presentations were 12-minute presentations, as opposed to the 10-minute presentations that 2022 teams will produce. Additionally, there were only five finalists in 2020. And finally, due to the way these presentations were submitted, the university name is shown on the presentations. The 2020 judges did not see the electronic versions of these presentation, and as such, did not see the names of the universities. 2022 teams should NOT provide any identifying information on their slide decks aside from their team numbers and the names of their team members.
Dr. Mohammed Ali, an Associate Professor at Emory's Rollins School of Public Health and practicing family physician, provides his insights into how you can make the most of your time with your case advisor. He also provides helpful suggestions regarding case preparation and how you can take full advantage of your case competition experience. Dr. Ali helped launch the competition in 2009, has advised many EGHCC student case writing teams, and has served as a competition case advisor annually since the program's inception.
Good Case Solutions: A Judge's Perspective
Mr. Phil Jacobs, an Emory Global Health Institute Advisory Board member, successful businessman, and philanthropist, has judged Emory Global Health Case Competitions since 2010. In this brief video, Mr. Jacobs gives his perspective on the elements that make a good case solution.
Registration Fees and Payment Instructions
There is no cost to apply, however, once a team has been accepted to participate in the competition, it will be required to pay a non-refundable registration fee. Below are the registration fee rates per team based on the income level of the country in which the university is located. Income levels are based on World Bank data, and EGHI followed the Consortium of Universities for Global Health's model regarding the percentage of the full registration fee that teams from MICs and LICs are expected to pay.
High-Income Countries (HICs): $500 USD Middle-Income Countries (MICs): $250 USD Low-Income Countries (LICs): $125 USD
If you are uncertain what income level your university's country falls in, please see the links below.
EGHI will offer a limited number of scholarships that will cover the registration fee for universities located in LICs. If your university requires scholarship assistance to participate, please contact Rebecca Baggett at [email protected] for more information. Universities or individual team members can pay the registration fee via credit card or by check via Fed Ex. Visit this site to pay your registration fee via credit card.
To pay by check via Fed Ex, please make your check is payable to the Emory Global Health Institute and write 2022 Emory Morningside GHCC in the memo line. Please send the check via Fed Ex to the attention of Rebecca Baggett at the following address:

The Emory Morningside Global Health Case Competition brings together students from diverse disciplines and multiple countries to address a real-world global health challenge. Multidisciplinary students teams work together for one week to develop comprehensive case solutions to the hypothetical but relevant global health challenge presented to them. Student teams present their case solutions to an external panel of judges on competition day.
Given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the fact that many countries still do not have readily available access to COVID-19 vaccines, the Emory Global Health Institute (EGHI) has decided to host the competition completely virtually for another year. The 2022 competition will take place March 11-19, 2022. EGHI will host up to 60 teams in the 2022 competition.
While we will remain connected only by computer screen, EGHI promises to provide student teams a great global health case challenge, opportunities to network virtually with each other and with professionals from numerous fields who will serve as case advisors, and the chance to win cash prizes!

The first 59 teams to apply will be accepted to participate (one spot is reserved for the Emory University team). There will be a wait list for teams that apply after the first 59. There is NO fee to apply to participate.

Each student team must designate a team captain prior to participating. The deadline for determining the team captain is March 7, 2022.
