Global Health Case Competition

The University of Minnesota Global Health Case Competition is a unique opportunity for students from multiple U of M schools and disciplines to collaboratively analyze a real-world global health challenge with the goal of providing helpful strategic recommendations to move the case subject forward efficiently and effectively. Teams of four to six students present their recommendations to an expert panel of judges.

Global Health Day

The annual Global Health Day at the University of Minnesota is held each fall when we come together to celebrate our work, exchange knowledge across disciplines, and make connections.

Our Goal is to champion interdisciplinary opportunities to exchange knowledge and expand abilities of teachers and learners for the advancement of global health.

We accomplish this by creating global health learning opportunities, providing scholarships at home and abroad, and supporting the development of courses to help learners prepare for and conduct global health experiences.
