Participants compete in teams of 4-6 students. Global health is an interdisciplinary field and draws its strength from a diversity of perspectives. 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.  This is a great opportunity to connect with others interested in global health and to get experience consulting for an international organization! 

Students can register as 

  • a full team (4-6 students),
  • a partial team (2-3 students)
  • an individual

Partial teams and individuals will be placed on interdisciplinary teams and notified of their teammates the week before the reveal.
