Team Places Third in Health Service CompetitionFall 2011, Inside Owen | No Comment | Print | Email
A team of students from the Owen School placed third in an inaugural health service case competition held at Northwestern University April 29–30. The 2011 Health Service Case Competition was the first of what the recently formed Business School Alliance for Health Care Management intends to become an annual event. Sponsored by DaVita, a leading provider of kidney care in the U.S., teams of three students each developed strategies to take on a real-world business case related to health care management.
Vanderbilt’s team included Dr. Jennifer Rymer, BS’05, MBA’11, MD’11; Avery Fisher, MBA’11; and Jonathan Cook, an MBA candidate for 2012. The team received a $1,000 award for finishing third behind the University of California, Berkeley, and Northwestern University.
