Case and Case Twist Released!
General Information

The Emory Global Health Institute (EGHI) invites Emory students from all nine Emory schools to participate in its 2021 Intramural Emory Global Health Case Competition. EGHI will host Emory student teams virtually in 2021 due to continued safety concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. While we won't be able to bring students together physically as we have in previous years, EGHI promises to provide Emory students with a challenging and relevant case to address, the opportunity to network virtually with professionals and each other, and the chance of winning a cash prize!

General Information
The Intramural Emory Global Health Case Competition provides multidisciplinary teams of Emory students with an opportunity to address a real-world global health challenge in a competitive and collaborative environment. Student teams work together for a week to analyze a case challenge and develop a comprehensive programmatic solution by incorporating perspectives from multiple disciplines.

How to Apply
EGHI will accept applications to participate from Emory students from November 9 - December 18, 2020. The APPLY button in the top right hand corner of this website will be live beginning at 10:00 am on Monday, November 9.

Who is Eligible to Apply?
All Emory undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to apply to participate including Emory College and Oxford College students. Emory medical residents and post-doctoral fellows are also eligible to apply. Teams are allowed to have one medical resident or post-doctoral fellow as a member, but this is not required. Students can apply as members of pre-formed multidisciplinary teams or as individuals. EGHI will place individual applicants on multidisciplinary teams.

Team Composition
Teams should be comprised of four-to-six students, and at least three different Emory schools must be represented on each team. For example, a team could include students from the School of Medicine, the Candler School of Theology, and Emory College. This is just an example though - we welcome teams comprised of students enrolled at all Emory schools - a team just needs to make sure at least three of its members are enrolled in different schools.

As mentioned above, each team is allowed to have one medical resident or post-doctoral fellow as a member, but this is not required. Students who apply as pre-formed teams should strive to have as many Emory schools represented as they can. Students who are enrolled in joint-degree programs represent both Emory schools in which they are enrolled. Medical residents and post-doctoral fellows represent the Emory school with which their residency or fellowship is affiliated.

Case Subject
The case subject for the 2021 Intramural Emory Global Health Case Competition will be developed and written during fall semester 2020 by a group of Emory students and faculty. While the case subject will not be revealed until February, EGHI promises it will be challenging and relevant. To read past case subjects, please visit EGHI's website.

Competition Format and Deliverables
The competition will be completely virtual and have two rounds. During the first round of the competition, teams will be required to submit a one-page executive summary and a 10-minute video of their case solutions. Unlike in past Intramural Emory Global Health Case Competitions, there will be no streams that teams participate in during the first round. Teams with the 5 highest first-round scores will receive a cash prize. Teams with the three highest first-round scores will advance to the final round of the competition. These three final-round teams will be required to incorporate a case twist into their final-round presentations. Finalist teams will present virtual, live 10-minute presentations and engage in five minutes of Q&A with judges. All deliverables must be in English.

Competition Rules and Judging
The Rules and Code of Conduct for participating Emory teams is now available via this link. Team members should sign and return the Rules and Code of Conduct to [email protected] by no later than Friday, February 5.

During the first round of the competition, pairs of judges with expertise in the case subject will each evaluate a set of teams' case solutions. All first-round judges will then evaluate the final-round teams' submissions. EGHI will use an online judging platform called RocketJudge for the first-round of the 2021 competition, and hard copy ballots for the final round. Judges will be required to score each first-round ballot he or she evaluates. EGHI is also asking each judge to provide qualitative comments about teams' first-round case solutions, which will be shared with individual teams the week following the competition. Judges will use the final-round scoring rubric as a guide as they discuss, debate, and come to a consensus regarding the placement of the three finalist teams.

Information about competition case advisors and  competition judges is now available.

Logistics and Resources
Below is a list of resources that provide information about competition logistics and that will aid in case solution preparation. Please note that 2020 slide presentations were 12 minutes, as opposed to this year's 10-minute maximum time limit. Additional resources will be added prior to Case Competition Week.
