Guidelines - Eligibility - Prizes

Graduate students currently enrolled in a CAHME-accredited health administration program are eligible to compete.

Approximately three weeks prior to the competition, the participating teams will receive the case to analyze and form recommendations. Teams will be expected to submit the following items prior to their arrival at the Health Administration Case Competition:

Executive Summary
PowerPoint Presentation
Accompanying Hand-Out Materials

During the competition, participating schools will be recognized by a fictitious name, not their university name. PowerPoint presentation must not have any reference to a team’s university name.

Participating teams will draw numbers on Wednesday evening. This number will determine when each team will present in the preliminary round.

All teams will participate in a preliminary round on Thursday morning. Each preliminary round will be scored out of 100 points by a 3-judge panel according to a standardized scoring sheet.

The top teams from the preliminary round will compete in the final round. The top three teams will win cash prizes. All participants will receive a certificate of participation. 

Cash Prizes are Awarded to the Top Three Teams:

1st place - $9,000 ($3,000 per team member, up to 3)
2nd place - $6,000 ($2,000 per team member, up to 3)
