Successful teams include undergraduate, graduate, and professional students from multiple backgrounds who each provide necessary insight to the issue. Medical knowledge is helpful but not necessary.
Students can register as
- a full team (4-6 students),
- a partial team (2-3 students)
- an individual
Registration is now closed.

Teams will be divided into four 'tracks' on competition day. One winner will be selected from each track to compete in the final round. All participants should be present for the entire duration of the competition (9 AM - 2 PM). The top three winning teams will receive a prize.
The overall winning team attended the 2020 International Global Health Case Competition, held at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia on March 13-14, 2020.
