This year, UCLA is hosting its first annual global health case competition (UCLA GHCC). The goal of this competition is to provide students with mentoring, networking, and real-world problem solving opportunities through collaboration in multidisciplinary teams that troubleshoot and develop innovative solutions to complex global health issues. This team-based competition will develop multiple initiatives to address global health and development cases, which may include engineering and technical innovations, management, law and policy reform, health economics and cost-effectiveness, as well as public health frameworks in order to improve specific health outcomes. The case competition will offer each team the opportunity to be mentored and judged by world-renowned UCLA faculty experts across multiple fields, as well as foster interdisciplinary critical thinking and collaboration.
Teams will be built around 4-6 students from at least 3 different UCLA schools (undergraduate, medical, public health, business, law, etc). UCLA’s case competition will take place on February 6, 2021, and the winning team will move onto Emory’s international case competition on March 13-16, 2021.
If you are interested in joining a team, please come out to our information night and mixer on December 2 from 6-7 pm. This event will help facilitate networking between different UCLA schools to find teammates and create well-rounded teams. Applications to participate in the case competition will be released the following day on December 3 and stay open until December 14.
