How to enter

Have you got what it takes to solve a global health problem? The University of Melbourne will send six postgraduate students to Atlanta in 2020 to compete in the Emory Global Health Case Competition, and you could be one of them.

Our 2020 Melbourne Team

Our 2020 Melbourne team will need students from diverse academic backgrounds, as global health goes far beyond medicine. Factors such as food and water quality, education, economics, human rights and good government are all health influencers, as described in the recently adopted UN Sustainable Development Goals.

The team will be selected from participants in the University of Melbourne Global Health Case Competition.

Emory and Melbourne Competitions

In both the Emory and Melbourne competitions, teams of up to six students will be given a major global health problem to work on over several days. Students will then present their strategy to address the problem before a panel of judges.

A diversity of academic backgrounds and life experiences is the basis for a winning team. Students from all postgraduate degrees at the University are encouraged to apply. Successful applicants will be placed into teams for the Melbourne competition.
